Nigeria’s U-23 squad has been charged by the Acting Consul General, Consulate of Nigeria, Atlanta, Mr. Olu Falomo to go all out and exhibit the Nigerian spirit so as to reclaim the Olympic football gold and make Nigeria proud again.

The acting Consul General made this charge on Sunday at the team's Hyatt Palace Hotel, Atlanta, United States when he played host to players and officials of the team.

 Represented by the Consul (Consular and Immigration), Mr. Dele Momoh, the Consul General said: "Presently, we are going through a lot as a nation, and we are counting on all of you guys to make great effort to give us something to cheer about and make us happy.

 "You guys are not in a very enviable position, in view of the recent happenings in Nigeria sports, football inclusive. Our Flying Eagles just lost back home, and these creates some kind of depression. In view of all the daunting issues we are going through, I am telling you that the whole nation, the 180 million people back home are looking up to you to just put a smile on their faces.

 "I believe with the Nigerian spirit there is nothing we can not do, I know the capacity and ability of your technical crew, and I believe you can do it."

Responding, Coach Samson Siasia thanked the Consul General for taking time off his busy schedule to play host to the team and give the boys moral boosting talk that will go a long way in making the boys know the task ahead of them.

 Assuring the Consul General and Nigerians that the team will not let the nation down, Coach Siasia disclosed that the boys are battle ready to do the nation proud at the men’s football tournament of the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil next month.
