Telecommunication outfit, Globacom, has congratulated Coach Samson Siasia and his players for winning the African U-23 Nations Cup in Dakar, Senegal on Saturday. The Siasia-coached team defeated Algeria 2-1 in a highly technical game to emerge the African champions after enduring a shaky start in the tournament.

“We are delighted that the team overcame all adversities to triumph over Algeria, thereby adding to the laurels won by Nigeria in the outgoing year,” Globacom said in a statement released in Lagos on Sunday. “We particularly commend the entire team for taking the criticisms that greeted their initial poor performance in their stride and re-dedicated themselves to making Nigeria proud,” the statement added.

The company said that as the nation’s next generation network, “We encourage this crop of creative footballers to go and conquer the world in football at the Olympic Games holding in Brazil, and thereafter make the national team the dream team that Nigerians are yearning for.”
