Former National team coach James Peters has said that Samson Siasia has assembled a good U-23 squad capable of winning the All Africa Games gold medal in Congo and the CAF U-23 championship in Senegal, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
According to Peters, the Dream Team VI players under the tutelage of Siasia have shown that they are a squad with a mission, adding that they can only get better with every game they play.
“With the manner they have been improvIng with every game in both the Olympic and AAG qualifiers, I see them as possible winners of both U-23 championship in Senegal and the Congo All Africa Games if they continue to improve, Peters told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“I think Siasia deserves to get the thumbs up for building a squad that will ultimately become the future Super Eagles. He has done a wonderful job and he should be encouraged to do more. Watching that team play gives me hope and the believe that the future is bright for our football.”
The former assistant General Secretary Technical with the Nigeria Football Federation, stressed that Siasia should get to work immediately by getting dossiers of all the teams that qualified for the AAG and the CAF U-23 championship.
He also called on the NFF to assist Siasia by providing him video clips of all the teams in both competitions and ensuring that he gets all the support for his programme, noting that it will not augur well if they don’t get all their demands to meet their targets.
