Siasia goes tough on Dream Team players

21 April 2016, 16:21Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Head Coach of the Nigeria U-23 team, Samson Siasia has disclosed that any of the players invited from the domestic scene who fails to report to camp by Monday, 25th April should not bother coming to camp, as the technical crew will work with only players available to them and are willing to play at the Olympics.

Speaking after the team's training session at the practice pitch of the Abuja National Stadium, Siasia said he does not want to make the mistake of the past when players who had been penciled down by the coaching crew were not available when needed.

“I want to work with only the players on ground, and to get them to the shape I want,” Siasia reiterated.

Nigeria has been placed in Group B alongside Sweden, Colombia and Japan.

In Group A, South Africa will have to deal with host Brazil, Denmark and a less-fancy Iraq, while Algeria has a tough huddle against Argentina, Portugal and Honduras in Group D.
