29 June 2015, 08:57

Abuja - Dream Team VI Coach Samson Siasia says he hopes his team can get a proper feel of the environment in Port Harcourt, before next month's CAF U23 championship qualifier against Congo. 

The Nigerian U23 team is set to face their Congolese counterparts in the final round, first leg qualifier for the U23 championship which serves as qualifiers for the Olympic Games, at the Liberation Stadium. 

And Siasia, whose team is presently camped in Abuja, says he would want his players to get used to the environment before the game.

 "It will be nice to have some proper training there so the boys can get used to the environment and Stadium," Siasia said. 

"They're getting used to Abuja so it will be nice for them to get used to Port Harcourt so they feel at home during the game."

The Beijing 2008 Olympic Silver Medal winning coach further reiterated that he is okay with the choice of Port Harcourt for the game, and called on the fans to throng the Stadium to support the team. 

"Port Harcourt is not bad and I have no problems with it. I just want the fans to come out and support us that day," Siasia said.
