Siasia unimpressed with Super Eagles players

11 March 2016, 13:14Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Interim coach Samson Siasia has challenged the Super Eagles home stars to show they can be relied upon to deliver the goods in crucial matches whenever the need arises.

Siasia was unimpressed with the players after they struggled to a scoreless draw Thursday evening against Nigeria National League side, Katsina United in a friendly game played inside the main bowl of the National Stadium, Abuja.

"We have to step up our commitment level and show more seriousness," the Coach opened up to his players.

"I am yet to see that hunger in all of you in all the friendly matches we have played so far since we opened this camp. We are facing Egypt in about two weeks and we will not stand any chance against them if we do not change our attitude," Siasia said.

He added: "How can we, the Super Eagles, play against this NNL team and fail to create one clear –cut goal scoring opportunity? If we cannot create chances in this kind of games, when and where will we be able to create them? I know we are far better than this performance and will improve but we have to do so very quickly because there is no time."

Since opening camp last Sunday in Abuja, the Super Eagles home stars have played three friendly games, two of them against the Rio Olympics –bound Nigeria U23 team. They have managed to score twice and also conceded two goals, a situation that the coaches would want changed as preparation shifts to a higher level in the coming days.
