Siasia seeks win in Gabon

By John Egbokhan

SiasiaCoach Samson Siasia has urged the U-23 team to beat Gabon in today’s All Africa Games qualifying game in Libreville to convince Nigerians that they are the next Super Eagles.Speaking to the players yesterday, Siasia said with the quality of players at his beck and call that he was not expecting anything less than a win against the Gabonese.

“Nigerians expect nothing short of victory from you guys come Saturday, you guys should put in mind that you are the next generation of Super Eagles players, but for Nigerians to accept you as such, you all must show that on the field of play, that is the only way that you can convince the nation that you have what it takes to take over,” Siasia said.

Siasia reminded the boys that Nigeria did not qualify for the football event of the last All Africa Games in Maputo, and as such will not entertain any excuse from them, as nothing short of a ticket for the games is good enough for the nation.
