I’ve Picked My Over Aged Players For Olympics – Siasia

SiasiaHead coach of the U-23 national team, Samson Siasia says he has made his choice on the three over aged players to include in his team for the Rio Olympics.

The tactician who saw his team zoned against Sweden, Japan and Colombia in Group B insists he will announce their names at the appropriate time while expressing optimism over his side’s chances of progressing to the knock out phase.

“ I already have in mind the three over aged players that I intend using at the Games,” Siasia said. “But I will not disclose their names for now as I think it’s still too early to do so.

For me, there is no good or bad draw, for all the teams played qualifiers to get here,” the former Super Eagles coach admitted. “Besides, the Group B that we are in has two continental champions alongside Nigeria, so I don’t expect it to be a stroll in the park for us, but with quality preparations I am sure we will pick one of the tickets from this group.

“My target in Rio is to pick the gold medal having won the silver medal in Beijing in 2008, so when I get back to Nigeria, I will put heads together with my assistants to work out our preparations for the Games.
