Abuja - Dream Team VI coach Samson Siasia has rued the missed chances in their slim 2-1 win over Congo in the first leg, last round CAF U23 championship qualifier.
The game, which was played at the Adokiye Amasiemaka Stadium in Port Harcourt on Sunday, saw the Nigerian U23 team waste so many scoring opportunities and Siasia admits they should have put more of their chances away.
“I thought we should have scored up to three or four goals given the chances we created,” Siasia said post-match.

“We have so many chances but we couldn’t put them away and if we did we would have scored more than the two goals we scored,” he stated.
Speaking further, Siasia reckoned the second leg in Pointe Noire will be tougher, but remained optimistic his team will scale through.
“The second leg will be tougher I can assure you of that,” he said.
“We have to improve on our performance on the day because we have to do better in Congo.
“The good thing now is that we have seen them play and we know what to expect so we will be ready but I am confident we will get the required result,” he added.
