Nigeria U-23 head coach Samson Siasia has said he will use the Suwon tournament to decide which of his players will make the Rio Olympics’ squad.

The Dream Team VI arrived South Korea on Monday for this year’s Suwon tournament, where they will face the hosts, Denmark and Honduras, in a four-nation competition.

The 48-year-old has warned his boys against complacency if they ever what to make it to Rio for this summer’s Olympic Games.

Speaking to Goal, the former Super Eagles player said: “We have been practicing all this while to ensure the players know exactly the way we want them to play, the discipline level and getting to understand the team.

“You know that these guys are from different clubs apart from the ones that have been playing with us for a very long time now; they know exactly how we want them to play.

“But the new ones that are coming in have to understand the way we play and that is where the problem is for now. That is the essence of having these friendly games and tournament like the Suwon tourney to see how the new players can understand playing with the ones we have here before.

“So we will see after those three games in Korea we will know exactly the players that will be with us and the ones that we will have to bring in if we need to bring in some other guys.

“Thank God we still have a month to test players in our camping in England and in the United States of America after we might have come back from the Korea tournament,” he concluded.
