Siasia has appointed Mikel as Captain of the Dream Team vi side. He stated that" Mikel Obi was a natural choice to lead the team as he is also the captain of the Nigerian Olympic contingent as well as the Super Eagles.
Samson Siasia was the coach of Dream Team iv, who won a silver medal for Nigeria in the Beijing Olympics in 2008, losing to the Argentina under 23 squad.
He has the onus of grabbing another Olympic glory at the Rio Olympics. The Dream team vi has started well,winning their opening match early this morning against Japan 5 goals to 4.
Samson Siasia is a tactician who believes in hard work and fitness. He has chosen a twenty three man squad who are skillful,fit and tactical to handle any opponent. John Mikel Obi is the Skipper of the squad, his experience and exposure will come to play for the. Dream team.
My advice to the team is not to lose their head over their first match victory,but they should take every game with utmost seriousness. And with diligence,hard work and Prayers. I believe they can lift the Olympic Gold at Rio.
