Siasia Invites Overseas-Based Players For U-23 Eagles Vs Brazil 

By Bamidele Boluwaji:



National U-23 Eagles coach Samson Siasia has told Completesportsnigeria.com that he will invite some overseas-based players for the international friendly match against Brazil next month.



The USA ’94 FIFA World Cup hero who spoke with Completesportsnigeria.com ahead of the match said he had submitted his programme of activities for the match to the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, and also made it clear in the programme that he needs some overseas-based players who can be accessed during the buildup matches ahead of the Olympics.


According to Siasia, some home based players will also be invited for the match billed to hold on March 21 and 29 in Brazil.


“I met with the NFF Technical Committee Chairman, Chris Green today (Tuesday) and I have told him the choice of players we need for the Brazil game, and he was happy that we are also working towards it. I also made it clear in the list I sent to them that we need some foreign based players I can access through the match. So we are planning towards the games”,  the former Nantes FC of France striker said.


“The foreign based players we are inviting now are the ones we did not have enough time to access before the Olympic Games qualifiers in Senegal and now that we have big friendly games coming up, I think this is the opportunity for us, so that we can have a strong team."


Meanwhile, the former Super Eagles coach said based on his discussion with the NFF’s Technical Committee boss, he expects the players to be called to camp this weekend.


“From our discussion, I expect the camp to open this weekend or next so that we can start preparing for the games,”  Siasia said
