Speaking with NAIJ.com, the shot-stopper disclosed that the present crop of players selected by Samson Siasia can get the job done in Rio.

“Presently our squad is a very good,” he started. We have played together for a while and we won the Nations Cup.

“I think we can go far at the Olympics because we have a good coach and he has selected good players too.”

Daniel who is on the radar of Shooting Stars as well as Nasarawa United asserted that the 1- 0 away victory in the friendly played against the Brazil is an evidence that Nigeria will do well against any opposition.

“The match against Brazil was a tough one but fortunately for us we won the match.
