Coach Samson Siaisia has disclosed that he will experiement with reserve players when the team faces Columbia in their last Group B encounter tomorrow.
The Dream Team VI have qualified for the quarter finals having won their games against Japan and Sweden proving bookmakers wrong.
Siasia insists that his key players will not be on parade when Nigeria face Colombia at the Arena dos Corinthians in Sao Paulo tomorrow in their final group match.
“I had to take this decision because we have qualified for the quarter finals as group leaders, and secondly I need to rest some of the starters because in the next phase there is a possibility of going into extra time,” Siasia told the NFF website.
“For now the boys have done well and I need to make the other players justify why I selected them for this tournament.
“This is not a tea party so everyone must stand up to be counted, and the only way they can be counted is if they play well against Colombia. Resting some starters does not mean we are underrating the opposition.”
