Dream Team make changes ahead of Brazil friendly

07 March 2016, 17:09Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The technical crew of the U-23 National Team, Dream Team, has dropped both Chukwuebuka Iroha and Oluwaseun ‎ Olulayo for not measuring up to the standard expected of them in camp since resumption of training programme.

The crew said it was disappointed with the level of fitness displayed by the duo who were part of the team that triumphed at the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations in Senegal in December 2015, and warned that no player is guaranteed automatic shirt to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

In a related development, Super Eagles Head Coach, Samson Siasia has directed that three players, namely Segun Oduduwa, Usman Mohammed and Stanley Dimgba should no longer report to the Super Eagles camp, as punishment for reporting late to the Dream Team camp without permission.

Siasia stated that the affected players are no longer part of his plans for the Egypt game, so should concentrate on the friendly against Brazil with the Dream Team.

In a bid to beef up the Dream Team, the technical crew has extended an invitation to Rangers of Enugu player Obinna Nwobodo, who is expected to report to camp immediately with the other Rangers players on Monday.
