Coach Samson Siasia has blamed careless mistakes for his side’s embarrassing 2-6 defeat to Denmark.

The Nigeria’s U-23 team were beaten 2-6 by the Danes in Saturday’s Suwon Invitational tournament matchday 2 clash at the Goyang Sports Complex in South Korea.

Siasia said his wards got everything wrong from the start of the match to the end of the encounter and were ruthlessly punished by their Scandinavian opposite.

“We got it wrong from the blast of the referee’s whistle we made so many mistakes we didn't play like we were meant to.

“The Danes did not play so well in their first game but they were tactically sound and we simply did not know how to defend against them.

“There were too many blunders on our side. We allowed them to control and pass the ball and that's how we got killed.

“It's so embarrassing I have never lost by six goals anywhere since I started my coaching career.

“All the same that's why we are here to look at the guys that can play and the ones that we can take to the Olympics.

“It is very embarrassing not because we lost but the way we lost. Now we have to snap out of it. We still have one more game to play we will work hard to see that one turns out differently,” said Siasia to

Siasia said his biggest problem is the defence, as well as the inability of the strikers to convert the goal scoring opportunities that have come their way? at the tournament beginning with the 0-1 loss to the hosts, South Korea on Thursday.

The Dream Team V1 will play their last game at the tournament against Honduras on Monday at the 35,000 capacity Bucheon Sports Complex.
