The list of Super Eagles players called up by coach Samson Siasia for the must win double clash against the Pharaohs of Egypt has generated lots of controversies.

Owngoalnigeria.com in it’s style of revealing the news behind the news brings to you indices we gathered were taken before some names were included while some were controversially excluded.

A list of possible players for the game has already been drawn up by former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh in conjuction with his assistants but one among his assistant Salisu Yusuf who is also a part of the present technical crew tried in futility to make a case for the players on the list.

New coach Samson Siasia already has players in his mind hence a player like Fanendo Adi was preferred ahead of Anthony Ujah same as Stanley Amuzie whose choice knocked off AS Trencin Kingsley Madu.

Amuzie we gathered was invited to be a back up to first choice left full back Elderson Echjiejile as a means of compensating him for missing out on a spot at the U-23 AFCON in Senegal after playing in almost all of their qualifiers.

The Olhanense of Portugal left full back has only 30 minutes of professional football in his career as the former Flying Sport academy ace is just recovering from an injury that kept him out for six months.

Seun Oduduwa and Sincere Seth players from non league sides Nath Boys and Rhapsody FC are integral part of the Super Eagles interim manager U-23 team and their inclusion was basically done to give them experience and exposure ahead of their Olympic campaign in Rio.
