Echiejile: U-23 Eagles Tried But Must Improve For Olympics

By Johnny Edward:

Super Eagles left-back Elderson ‎Echiejile has tipped the U-23 Eagles to win the on-going Africa U-23 Cup of Nations in Senegal.

Echiejile told Completesportsnigeria.com that he was‎ impressed the Nigerian team resisted the rampaging Senegalese side to qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympic men's football event after they edged the Young Teranga Lions 1-0 in Wednesday's semi-final clash.

"It wasn't an easy fixture against the hosts but they survived against all odds to qualify for the Olympics," the As Monaco defender said.‎


"The have done well but more work must be done to equal the feat of the 1996 set."

The U-23 Eagles will face Algeria in Saturday's final in Dakar.
