–Says he is determined to produce quality team
National U-23 Eagles coach Samson Siasia has revealed the secret behind the team’s trip to Tunisia for a two legged international friendly game with the Tunisian U-23 side, saying presenting the best team at the upcoming All Africa Games and Olympic Games qualifiers is a top priority in his programme.
Siasia who led the team out to Tunisia yesterday told Complete Sports that playing two games in Tunisia will be of great help to him and the players as he prepares to select his final team for the challenges ahead.
“We are planning ahead of the challenges we are going to face this year and for the team to be ready for that, they need to prepare very well. I accepted this international friendly because it will expose the players and also help them to learn away from home”, says the ex-international.
He however explained the idea behind dividing the team into two, saying the players that will be tried at the Glo Super Six tournament in Abuja will be part of the team that will embark on foreign trip in order for them to test their might against foreign teams.
Meawhile, Coach Fatai Amoo has been assigned by Coach Samson Siasia to tinker the team at the Super Six while he takes care of the team in Tunisia.
