The Nigeria U-23 team were largely disappointing in their second game at the ongoing Suwon Invitational tournament as they were roundly beaten 6-2 by the Denmark U21 team on Saturday.
The Coach Samson Siasia tutored side who were narrowly beaten by South Korea 1-0 in their opening game were expected to turn on style against the Danes on Saturday but that was never to be as the Scandinavian country instead ran riot; scoring three goals each in the two halves before substitute Yusuf Abdulrahman helped reduced deficit with his brace.
Emily Darsen was the tormentor-in-chief for the Nigeria defence as the youngster fired in a hat-trick for the Denmark side that made 10 changes to the team that lost 4-3 to Honduras in the first game.
With two successive defeats, Nigeria will be hoping to save face against Honduras in their last game even as the poor show in Suwon highlights the need for more work for Siasia and his crew if their dream for a good outing in Rio is to be achieved
