Olympic qualifier: Siasia welcomes Port-Harcourt venue

National Under- 23 team coach, Samson Siasia revealed that the choice of Port Harcourt by the Nigeria Football Federation for the home game of next month’s African U-23 Championship first leg qualifying match against Congo was a welcomed development.

“Port Harcourt is home for me.

“And I want to assure Nigerians that my boys will find the place to be home as well. I am appealing to the people of Port Harcourt and indeed the adjoining towns and States to come out en masse to support the Dream Team against Congo, so that we can win well and render the return leg a mere formality,”said Siasia.

He said that before the NFF took the decision, he had already made plans to move to Port Harcourt.

“As far as we are concerned, the choice of Port-Harcourt by the NFF is a commendable one. We are working on a plan to see that we move over to the Garden City in good time before the game so as to get used to the pitch well ahead and also get used to the people of the city.”
