From the stables of the first football site to bring you news of Samson Siasia accepting to coach the Super Eagles, owngoalnigeria.com can also reveal the coach will next week open talks with two aggrieved members of the team.

Siasia we gathered will after the conclusion of this weekend games in Europe speak with Emmanuel Emenike and erstwhile Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama over a potential return to the team.

Both players left the team at different intervals for different reasons under former coach Sunday Oliseh but Siasia wants all hands on deck especially the experienced players ahead of the double header against Egypt in March.

“Siasia will speak with Enyeama and Emenike that I can assure you, remember he gave Emenike his competitive debut for Nigeria and he has very close ties with Enyeama above all we need our best hands for the Egypt tie” A source close to the coach told owngoalnigeria.com.

Emenike scored twice for West Ham in the FA Cup last weekend while Enyeama has twice posted shut out notably against PSG where he frustrated the log leaders and played a huge role in ending their winning run.
