Chief Coach of National Under-23 team,Samson Siasia has hinted that the team may not participate in the Super Six tournament being packaged by the NFF/LMC for clubs involved in continental competitions.
He told Complete Sports that the team will be heading to Tunisia for two friendly games against their Tunisian counterparts on January 24 and 28 noting that the games will no doubt help the boys to know their strength.
“I think the games in Tunisia will be more beneficial to the team than playing in the Super Six. I have told the NFF about it but if they insist may be we divide the team into two to play both in Tunisia and here in the Super Six tournament.
“The players I have here have been carefully picked after series of screening exercises and I am optimistic they will give the result I want by delivering when called upon. These boys here are the best in their age bracket in the country and I believe in them,’
On the Tunisia game, Siasia said the team will jet out on January 22 to return on January 29 after the two games stressing that efforts are geared towards ensuring that the Dream Team have a good outing in the double header against Tunisia.
The former Super Eagles coach stated that he is yet to prune the team because he has yet to see them in a real match situation, adding that after the friendly games some of them will have to go.
