Nigeria on Wednesday appointed Sunday Oliseh as coach of the National team on a three-year contract. Here are 18 facts you need to know about the Super Eagles' driver:

Sunday Ogorchukwu Oliseh was born 14 September 1974 in Abavo, Delta State.

Oliseh played 54 international matches and scored two goals for Nigeria

He 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 a defender – Oliseh ran and fired an explosive shot from 25 yards and took Spanish goalkeeper Andoni Zubizarreta completely by surprise

Despite serving as captain of the Nigerian team during the 2002 African Cup of Nations, Oliseh was omitted from the World Cup squad later that year for disciplinary reasons

Oliseh retired from international football in June 2002

Oliseh was a physical, technical defensive midfielder, with National Jersey number 15

Oliseh played for well-known clubs such as AFC Ajax, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus F.C.

In March 2004, Oliseh was sacked by Borussia Dortmund after punching team-mate Vahid Hashemian while on loan at VfL Bochum

Oliseh started his football career in 1989 with Julius Berger and in January 2006, at the age of 31, Oliseh retired from professional football after playing a half season for Belgian top club K.R.C. Genk

Oliseh managed the clubs Eupen in 2007 and Verviétois

Oliseh featured in 321 matches and scored 18 goals in the domestic leagues for his clubs

Sunday Oliseh is a TV pundit and analyst with several coaching qualifications - the UEFA B Diploma, the UEFA A Diploma

He also has the highest qualification, the UEFA Pro license, making him one of the most qualified coaches in the world

He has also enjoyed rave reviews for his website www.sundayoliseh.tv which has great resources for aspiring players and their parents

Oliseh speaks Italian, German, Dutch, Flemish, French and English fluently

He is married to his heartthrob, the old lady of Italian football, Hafida.
