Nigeria U-23s coach Samson Siasia has stated that his team will go all out to attack Egypt in Wednesday’s group B African U-23 Cup of Nations clash.
Siasia made this promise in Tuesday’s pre-match press conference held at the Caroline Faye Stadium, M’Bour.
Siasia pointed out that his players will not be as generous towards the Egyptians the way they were against Mali on Sunday.
“We were damn lucky in our first game against Mali,” Siasia said.
“After watching that game again, all I can say is that this is not Christmas yet and as such my players can not give out free gifts, because if we do that against an organised side like Egypt who are good in set pieces, then we are finished.
“Our target tomorrow is to go all out and attack, attack, attack, because that is our strong point, then we will work on our defence line, so that we don’t give out cheap and easy passes to our opponents.”
He also stated that Victor Osimhen will definitely get his chance to play in the team.
“The young man is in my plans, when the right time comes I will introduce him, he has a lot of potential that I can tell you, but we need to wait for the right time, he is a part of this team.”
A win for the Eagles will see them qualify for the semi-final of the U-23 Cup of Nations.
The group’s other game will see Algeria take on Mali.
