Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh said he had to play a makeshift team following a visa hitch that made Oboabona and six players from the domestic league not to join the squad in Belgium in time.
“We played a makeshift team and we are trying to rebuild. I saw a very good team, we had more possession even though there were shortcomings in certain areas,” reasoned Oliseh.
“We lost but (Alexander) Iwobi came in and showed some good signs, Shehu (Abdullahi) and some other players made their debut.
“It has been very difficult for us working here.
“Our aim is to try to qualify for the (2017) Nations Cup.”
