AFCON Qualifier: Siasia Drops 3 Players For Showing Up In Camp Late


Nigeria caretaker coach Samson Siasia has dropped three players for the AFCON qualifiers against Egypt after they reported late to the country’s Olympic team training camp.

Segun Oduduwa, Usman Mohammed and Stanley Dimgba were part of the squad who won the U23 AFCON in Senegal and have been called up for the Olympic team’s training camp for a friendly against Brazil later this month.

Siasia has now ordered the three players not to show up at the Super Eagles camp as punishment for reporting late to the Dream Team camp without permission.

“We cannot have those three in camp anymore. This is very serious business, and only serious –minded persons can be involved. They reported late to the camp of the U-23 team, so they cannot be tolerated in the camp of the senior team," he said.

“I have said it over the past few days that the right mentality would count big among the traits we are looking for in the players to feature against Egypt.”


Siasia stated that the affected players are no longer part of his plans for the Egypt games, so they should concentrate on the friendly against Brazil with the Dream Team VI.
