Samson Siasia: Nigeria U23 will win Olympics if...
Coach of Team Nigeria’s U-23 Eagles Samson Siasia has spoken on his team’s recent quarter final victory over Denmark at the men’s football event in the 2016 Olympics currently going on in Brazil.

Siasia speaking on Sunday said:

“We saw what they (U-23 Eagles) did to the Danish team. They are a good side. They did not start well, but the most important thing is how you end.

“We still have one game to go; we are not worrying about Brazil now. If we get to the final together, then we will see what we can, to make sure we get the gold medal.

“We all know it was not easy, nobody wants to be in the situation we were in weeks ago when we were still in Atlanta.

“But, your circumstances should not determine what goals you set yourself and what you want to achieve.

“It was very difficult circumstances. We struggled to get here. But there is oneness, a team spirit and a willingness to overcome.”
