Siasia: My defenders are my biggest problem

06 June 2016, 21:07Israel Ojoko

Seoul - Dream Team coach Samson Siasia has placed the blame of Nigeria’s poor outing at the 4-Nation Suwon Invitational Tournament on the doorstep of his defenders.

Nigeria finished third with just one win (3-1) over Honduras on Monday, after falling 1-0 to host South Korea and 6-2 to Denmark.

“The biggest problem we are having right now is that we do not defend very well; we create several chances but do not convert them. So, we need to make changes in those areas for us to move ahead from here, we have other games coming up too in America. After making those changes we will see how well the team will look going to the Olympics.

"I don't see any plus right now, I only saw players that are not fit enough, that's the biggest problem we had. The change of weather actually affected the few ones that we trusted to play well, most of them faltered, so that's a problem, and we need to address these things in a hurry."

According to News24, Siasia said the most important thing is that team officials and the players have learnt a lot from the tournament which they will take back home to start making our corrections.
