"You know first games are normally difficult to play
and also putting in mind that Ghana are always difficult to play when it comes
to Nigeria, I must commend my boys for playing to instruction, and take their
chances in the 2nd half.
"This result will now make the boys a little bit
relaxed for our next game against Senegal, as this will confirm our position in
our group," Siasia said.
The former Nigeria striker added that all he needs is for
Nigerians to keep giving them all the support for as things stands now, the
team needs all the support of the nation.
On whether he was missing the services of some of his
players who could not make it to Congo, Siasia said all players who have been
part of the team are important to the team and as such he missed their
services, but the reality on ground right now is that he will work with those
on ground and not lament over players not around.For
