Under-23 coach, Samson Siasia, has promised to build a good team before the commencement of the CAF U23 Africa Cup of Nations in November.

The team will play Egypt, Algeria and Mali in group B of the tournament that will serve as a qualifier for the Rio Olympics and Siasia admitted that he would try his best to produce a formidable team.

“I’m very sure we’re going to have a better team at the competition,” Siasia said.

“We are working on improving on the areas we felt we came up short at the African Games and I believe we’ll have a stronger squad when we’re done.”

“It’s not going to be easy to get the kind of players we want because obviously, we may not be having most or even all of our overseas based players.

“But we’re committed to working with what we have and ensure we get them to the level we want,” Siasia added.
