Do Not Boycott Quarter Finals, Dogara Begs Siasia, Dream Team

The speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has appealed to the national U23 team styled Dream Team VI, not to boycott its quarter final encounter against Denmark on Saturday, at the ongoing Rio 2016 Olympics.

Dogara, who was speaking against the backdrop of complaints of Team’s Head Coach, Samson Siaisia, that the players of the team have refused to train and may boycott the tie due to unpaid allowances and wages, said the Dream Team should take patriotism as a fulcrum of their campaign, as he will personally do everything within his powers to intervene in the matter.

He said the team has a very bright chance of repeating the feat of the Atlanta ’96 Dream Team led by the legendary Nwankwo Kanu and the team should be encouraged by all Nigerians.


He noted that football being the major unifying factor in the country should be maximized by all for Nigeria’s continued joy and unity.
