Sia-One Football Academy in conjunction with other academies in Abuja and environs who had a screening competition at the Goal Project Center, Package B of the Abuja National Stadium recently has selected a strong team that would participate at this year’s Dana Cup 2019 International Youth Soccer Tournament slated for Hjorring, Denmark from July 22 to 27, 2019.
But the reality of making the trip is hinged on timely sponsorship from football and youth loving corporate bodies and individuals who believe in football as the major factor for helping the course of the youths of Nigeria and to make their football dreams come true according to initiator of the program and Founder Sia-One Football Academy Samson Siaisa.
The former Super Eagles Chief Coach revealed this program towww.adantesports.com.ng today that “we have officially registered for the Dana Cup soccer competition holding in Denmark this July only waiting for confirmation from the organisers,”, Siasia disclosed.
The former International further informed that, “already 20 talented players have been selected for the trip and we have recalled them to start intensive training and preparations for Dan Cup as from this Friday at the Goal Project Center of package B, Abuja National Stadium.
“We are hoping to participate in the competition in Denmark with the academies players we have picked from the ones that participated in the trials in Abuja. We also have space for others that couldn’t make the trials but they must pass the screening before they can be accommodated in the team.
“I am now using this medium to call on the football loving corporate bodies and individuals to support this project financially for these kids to make the trip and realize their football dreams by making this trip a reality. Concerning the football abilities and talents of the players we have screened so far I am very sure and confident that these kids will do well in the competition”, Siasia assured.
He also told Adante Sports that “one of the major benefits of the players making the trip to participate in this year’s Dana Cup in Denmark is the that scouts would be there to pick the best players from the Nigerian team to their various clubs in Europe. This will help expose the players and also help them fulfill their dreams of playing in Europe and also better their lives financially.
“We can also help the ones that played in the competition but fail to get a club in Europe to get clubs in Nigeria while still providing assistance to them to move to Europe later”, Siasia also explained.
