Siasia-Mikel




Against the defeat suffered by the National Under 23 team in the hand of German team, both the coach, Samson Siasai and captain, Mikel Obi, have admitted the opposition were better at the Rio Olympics.

Germany team had lashed Nigerian team 2-0 on Wednesday, with Luka Kostermann and Petersen scoring the first and second goals respectively.

Nevertherless, both Siasia and Mikel said Nigerian team have put their loss behind them and forge ahead to ensure they bring home bronze medal, to come up in the third place of the competition.




Siasia recounting the situation said he was disappointed, that the team did not score though they had the chances.

He continues, “The German team did better. It is a shame but we don’t deserve to stay in the final playing like that.”

Mikel said, “We didn’t play well. We don’t deserve to be in the final.”

But the Chelsea midfielder,  who had promised to get the gold is not giving up on winning a medal,

“We are professional players and hopefully we can win a medal,” he said.

The football bronze is seen as possibly the last hope of the country picking up any medal from the Rio Games.

The entire Nigerian squad left London 2012 without any medal even though neither the men nor women’s football teams qualified for the London Games.

Nigeria won gold  at the  Atlanta ’96 Olympics  and silver at Beijing 2008.
