Siasia Wants Top Friendlies Ahead Tough AAG

By Bamidele Boluwaji:

National U-23 Eagles coach Samson Siasia has further reacted to the 2015 All Africa Games draw that pitted his team against Egypt, Senegal and Ghana in Group B, stating that top preparation will be key to his team's performance at the Games scheduled to hold in Congo Brazzaville later in the year.

The former Super Eagles coach also reckoned that the group is tough as people would say, but will try his best to ensure Nigeria qualify from the Group B.

"It looks a tough group, but the important thing is the type of preparation you have towards the games. With quality preparation on our side, we will definitely succeed, none of the countries is new to us, and the best we can do is to prepare well," says the former Flying Eagles coach.

"The players are in camp and we are doing our best to prepare them for the challenges ahead, and I tell you, we must not underrate any team."

Siasia who led the country's U-23 Eagles to silver winning feat at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China further disclosed to Complete Sports that the team will also be stronger with quality friendly matches.

"We have known our opponents now and what this means is that we need quality friendly matches to prepare the players. We are in camp trying to do our best and 
I am sure the players will be equal to the task.

The former Super Eagles coach also assured that they are not going to underrate any of their opponents at the All Africa Games in Congo.

    Coach Siasia should submit his proposals on friendly matches to NFF. He should bear in mind that he ought to assemble a team as strong as the Super Eagles if not stronger as the team should be able to transform to the Super Eagles after the Olympics in 2016. Matches should be arranged with strong, fast and skillful European teams as well as teams from African continent. No stone should be left unturned. We should bear in mind that the Flying Eagles performed abysmally at the World Cup in New Zealand because they did not get quality friendlies. They rather played weak opposition that could not expose their weak points for the coach Manu to work on.
