National U-23 Eagles coach Samson Siasia has told Complete Sports that he is busy working on how the team will excel at the 2015 All Africa Games in Congo having defeated Zambia 2-1 in Lusaka to qualify for the football event of the competition.
Speaking to Complete Sports yesterday, the dark complexioned former Super Eagles handler said he is also busy monitoring the players that will make the team to the competition as he assured that the team will be better than what it was during the qualifying period.
Siasia who was part of the Super Eagles team to the 1994 FIFA World Cup in the United States of America has also promised that Nigeria will excel in the competition.
“The qualifying series are over and we are all looking forward to the All Africa Games proper, but I must tell you that I am busy now preparing for the competition and part of what I am doing is monitoring the players. I need to know their form, mental ability and readiness for the competition”, says the former Nantes FC of France.
“We are also going to make sure that the team is stronger than what we saw during the qualifying series because the tournament itself will see tough teams in attendance.
Meanwhile, the National U-23 Eagles are likely to play the likes of Ghana, Egypt and Senegal during the competition.
