Nigeria coach Samson Siasia said the Home based Super Eagles played well and expressed happiness that the team was gradually picking up after seeing his side beat Niger 4-0 to qualify for the semi finals of the WAFU tournament currently taking place in Nigeria. Siasia spoke to Cafonline after the Niger victory.

What was your impression of the Eagles against Niger today?

First I must congratulate the players. They played very well and played to instructions. Tactically, we were sound; they won the ball, kept it and passed very well. Each time they lost it, they fought hard to win it back. I am happy with the way they played.

Chibuzo Okonkwo who normally plays in the heart of the defence was played as defensive midfielder in the match. Why?

Stanley Okoronkwo who plays that role was not feeling too well and we do not have enough players in the squad that is why I played Chibuzo in that position. He is a player who has been tried in different positions. We needed someone who could pass the ball and protect it. I have tried him in several positions. I think generally, they all played well.
