Siasia is among a consortium of coaches that have been put together by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), after Sunday Oliseh tendered his letter of resignation on Friday.
Speaking to newsmen in Abuja, Siasia said:
“It is an emergency assignment. If they (the NFF) say we should do the rescue job, we have to do it for the sake of Nigeria,” “We will go for the best legs. I mean players with commitment, to ensure that we qualify ahead of Egypt.
“We will look at the players we believe can help the team, including Vincent Enyeama and Emmanuel Emenike who retired from the team last year. The coaching crew will sit down and make up the list, and the Egyptians must fall as far as we are now in charge.”
