Head coach of the Nigeria Under-23 football team Samson Siasia, has changed his mind on his proposed plan to field a weakened side against Honduras, in today’s Bronze medal match against Honduras.

Siasia had plans of fielding some of the players who have not gotten enough game time, but pressure from superior powers has forced him to have a rethink and field his regulars against Honduras.

The Nigeria team are under pressure to help Nigeria win her first medal at the ongoing Rio 2016 Olympics, but still Siasia has plans of giving some players game time.
