Siasia Urges Dream Team To Avenge Defeat Against Denmark

Published on: 13 August 2016


Speaking at a press conference ahead of Saturday’s showdown against Denmark at Rio 2016, Dream Team VI coach Samson Siasia is hoping his team get their pound of flesh from the Scandinavians.

Two months back, the former Nantes striker was in the dugout when an under-strength squad were disgraced 6-2 by Denmark at the Suwon Invitational Tournament.

“ I knew there would be questions about the game. They killed us then. They had seven chances and scored six goals. It has never happened before in football, ” said Siasia.

“ There has been replacements on both our and their teams since then, but it will be a tough battle. We are ready and must ensure that it is we who win 6-2 this time.”

The Nigeria U23s are set to resume training on Friday afternoon local time after skipping the workout on Thursday over a pay dispute.
