#RioOlympics : Japan Victory Won’t Distract Us – Siasia

Nigeria U23 team’s Head Coach, Samson Siasia, has promised that his team will not get carried away by their winning start in the men’s football event at the Rio Olympics.

The Dream Team VI, despite arriving barely three hours to kickoff, gave a good account of themselves, beating Japan 5-4 early Friday morning.

While Siasia cherishes the win, he said he and his players had shifted focus to Sunday’s match against Sweden.

“We just won a game, we can’t and won’t allow this victory get into our heads. Our target here is to win the gold and this is just the first step of us achieving that aim. No two games are the same, for me this hurdle is over, when I wake up tomorrow I will then think of my next game,” Siasia told the media at his post-match conference.
