Ex-Internationals Urge Siasia to Strengthen U-23 Team Defence Line
Edema Fuludu, a former Super Eagles player, has identified the Nigeria U-23 Dream Team defence as weak and tasked coach Samson Siasia to strengthen the team’s defence in their next match against Egypt.
Nigeria U-23 team will play Egypt today Wednesday in the second Group B match of the ongoing 2015 U-23 African Nations Cup in Senegal.
Fuludu, a member of the 1994 Nations Cup winning team, commended the team’s formation, but says there is need to beef up the defence line.
He said the defence need to be focus, “for a team leading to concede two goals shows that the defence needs to be evaluated and strengthened.” He added.
In the same vein, Waidi Akanni, also a former internationa,l said that the midfield players need to work in coordination with the defence.
He, however, advised the team to take each game at a time.
