The NFF made the decision at its Executive Committee meeting which was held yesterday and finished in the early hours of today at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja.

The last time Siasia held that position he won silver at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, losing 1-0 to Argentina in the soccer final, a goal scored by Angel Di Maria for the Argentines.

Siasia was among the coaches tipped to replace Keshi for the Super Eagles job prior to his appointment as the coach of the Under-23 team.

Congratulations to the former striker of the Super Eagles, as a big fan of his I am happy to see him back handling a team for us but I wouldn't want him to be give the Super Eagles head coach positon for now. I believe the Nigerian Football Federation has made the right decision.
