I love big battles - Siasia

I love big battles – Siasia

By Lexi Elo
Nigeria U-23 team’s Head Coach, Samson Siasia has expressed confidence his boys will come out of the cauldron of Pointe Noire in flying colours after Sunday’s potentially –explosive 2015 African U-23 Championship final qualifying match.
A slim 2-1 advantage from the first leg in Port Harcourt means a battle is at hand, in a Congo-Brazzaville reputed for all manner of tactics against every visiting team.
[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”10″] Yet, Siasia is unfazed as he announced just before the team’s departure on Thursday that he relishes big games.
Siasia was in charge of the Nigeria U-23 team that also to negotiate tough runs to the Men’s Football Tournament of the 2008 Olympics. On November 16, 2007, the team needed at least a draw against Ghana in Accra to be in good stead for the ticket, and duly played out a 0-0 draw. Siasia’s boys completed the job with a 3-0 win over South Africa in Abuja in March 2008.
Although Siasia’s team lost the Olympics gold to Argentina in Beijing, the former Eagles’ skipper was in charge when the Super Eagles achieved a first –ever win over the Argentines – a 4-1 win in a friendly in Abuja on June 1, 2011.
The former star forward was also in charge of the Nigeria U-20 team that won silver at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in The Netherlands in 2005.
Recently, Siasia’s U-23 boys won both away matches on the road to qualifying for the 11th All-Africa Games football tournament – a 4-1 win over Gabon in Libreville and 2-1 defeat of Zambia in Lusaka.
