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.
