According to Oliseh, the team had the “ingredients” to win the 1994 FIFA World Cup in the USA. However, according to him, “the overall circumstances weren’t in our favour”.

“I still think we had the potential to win that year.” Oliseh said to FIFA.com

“All the ingredients were there, but the overall circumstances weren’t in our favour.

“At any rate, it had nothing to do with our squad, which had the talent to go all the way,” Oliseh added.
