–U23 Eagles coach declares: ‘We Are Condemned To Win In Lusaka’
Head Coach of the U-23 National Team, Samson Siasia has declared that even though the battle of Lusaka will be an herculean task, his wards are condemned to win so as to book their ticket to the Men’s Football Tournament of the 11th All-Africa Games.
Coach Siasia said this before releasing the list of 18 players selected for the huge game at the National Heroes Stadium, Lusaka on Sunday. The team will travel on Thursday.
Former Super Eagles’ Head Coach Siasia insisted that if the Zambians could come to Abuja to get a draw, his wards have no option but to go out there and earn a win. He however frowned at the attitude of Flying Eagles Captain Musa Mohammed who took permission to leave the camp to go and collect his international passport in Lagos and has failed to return to camp.
The selected 18 players are:
Goalkeepers: Daniel Emmanuel, Akande Abiodun.
Defenders: Obanor Erhun, Oduduwa Segun, Amuzie Stanley, Atanda Sodiq, Mustapha Abdullahi, Iroha Chukwuebuka.
