National U-23 team Coach, Samson Siasia, has commended the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for hiring former Super Eagles’ midfielder, Sunday Oliseh, as successor to the sacked Stephen Keshi.
“I think it is good development for football in the country as I believe Nigeria football will get back to its former enviable position,” Siasia said yesterday.
“Sunday is qualified for the job and I hope he succeeds in there.
“He should know how this terrain is. Some of us have been there for a while, he has been in Europe. I pray he copes well because as you know, it is not easy.”
Meanwhile, Siasia says his team is well prepared to take on Congo on Saturday at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt in their Olympic 2016 Championship first leg final round qualifier.
“We will need Port Harcourt fans to come out in large number to support us to victory,” the gaffer added
