Coach Samson Siasia is under attack by Nigerians and is being held responsible for Dream Team VI’s 2-0 loss to Colombia in their final group game at the ongoing Olympic Games in Brazil.
Siasia had stated that he will rest key players for the game, since Nigeria had already qualified for the quarter-final, having won their two opening matches against Japan and Sweden.
Colombia defeated Nigeria 2-0 in a match most described as one-sided as the South Americans navigated in and out of the Nigerian area all though the game.
Gutierrez latched onto an excellent pass from Pabon and pokes home to put the South Amreicans ahead in the fourth minute. Pabon doubled the lead for the Colombians later on from the spot after goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi brought down Precaido in the box.
The Dream Team would have conceded more as Colombia were clearly the better side especially in the second half, but Samson Siasia has been fingered as the culprit responsible for the poor performance and defeat of the dream team.
