Sunday Ogorchukwu Oliseh (born and bred in Abavo on 14 September 1974, Parents from Ebedei-Uno community in Ukwuani L.g.a of Delta State) is a former Nigerian footballer who in his active playing career played as a midfielder. He was the coach of the Nigerian national football team from July 14, 2015, until he resigned on February 26, 2016, over a "lack of support".
Ahead of the unveiling exercise by the Nigeria Football Federation, newly appointed Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh arrived Abuja, Nigeria the evening of Tuesday 14 July 2015 to take up the job of coaching Nigeria's national team, the Super Eagles. The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) decided to motivate him afterwards by giving him a brand new Nissan Altima 2.5 SL 2015 Model Car, which is worth 6 million Naira.. He started the AFCON qualifiers with Nigeria.
He resigned as Nigeria's national coach at about 2:28am 26th February, 2016 before the team's encounter with the pharaohs of Egypt in the AFCON qualifiers. He was barely 8 months into his stay as manager.
Oliseh played 54 international matches and scored two goals for Nigeria, and played at the Football World Cups of 1994 and 1998. Oliseh also participated in the Olympic gold medal winning team of 1996.
He is mostly remembered for scoring the winning goal in the group stage match against Spain in the 1998 World Cup, as Nigeria prevailed 3–2. A throw-in deep in the Spanish half was headed clear by Fernando Hierro – Oliseh ran and fired an explosive shot from 25 yards and took Spanish goalkeeper Andoni Zubizarreta completely by surprise. Despite captaining Nigeria during the 2002 African Cup of Nations, Oliseh was omitted from his country's World Cup squad later that year for disciplinary reasons. After missing out on World Cup selection, Oliseh retired from international football in June 2002.
