Nigerian U-23 coach, Samson Siasia disclosed ahead of the semi-final clash against Germany that he will not gamble with the team, the way he did when Nigeria lost 2-0 to Colombia during the group stages. Siasia made five changes to his starting team in the Colombian game.
Meanwhile Nigeria Football Federation president, Amaju Pinnick backed Siasia to come up with a winning formula. “As a Federation, we have always had confidence in Samson Siasia. I have confidence that Siasia can take the team to the final match on Saturday,” Pinnick said on arriving in Sao Paulo on Tuesday morning.
