Siasia: We must take our chances against Senegal

09 December 2015, 13:54

Abuja - Samson Siasia says they must create more chances and score more goals ahead of their CAF U23 Africa Cup of Nations semifinal game against Senegal.

Speaking ahead of the Wednesday clash at the Dakar National Stadium, Siasia noted that they have scored five goals in their last three games in the competition, but reckons they must create more and score more.

“We really need to create chances that we can finish,” he said.

“In the last three games, we have scored five goals which is good but we didn’t score in our last game so we just need to get our acts together and make sure we create chances we can score.

“We can’t keep creating chances in front of goal and have problem of scoring them just like it happened in the last game.

“We cannot go back now because this is our chance to qualify (for the Olympics) and we have to take our chance and we have to take it right now and that is what we came for,” Siasia posited.

The Dream Team VI, as the present Nigeria U23 is called, finished second in group B with five points behind group winners, Algeria.
