Abuja - Dream Team VI coach Samson Siasia has assured his team will get better before the CAF U23 Africa Cup of Nations in November.
The second edition of the now renamed CAF U23 championship starts in Senegal on November 28, with the top three teams guaranteed automatic qualification to the 2016 Olympic Games.
The Nigerian U23 side, otherwise known as the Dream Team VI, are grouped alongside Egypt, Algeria and Mali in group B, and will start their tournament against the Malians on November 29.
And speaking on the backdrop of his team's failure to win the recently concluded All Africa Games, Siasia says he's confident he will have a better team for the U23 Cup of Nations.
"I'm very sure we're going to have a better team at the competition (U23 Africa Cup of Nations)," Siasia said confidently.
"We are working on improving on the areas we felt we came up short at the All Africa Games and I believe we'll have a stronger squad when we're done."
Siasia however added that it won't be an easy task, seeing as he most likely won't be with most or all of his overseas based players.
"It's not going to be easy to get the kind of players we want because obviously, we may not be having most or even all of our overseas based players.
"But we're committed to working with what we have van ensure we get them to the level we want," Siasia added.
