Siasia 43, who had his proud parents in attendance at his public presentation competed with former Togo’s ex-coach, Stephen Keshi, for the country’s top coaching post.

The Eagles are three points behind group leader, Guinea, after two matches with only the eventual group winner guaranteed automatic qualification to the tournament.
Madagascar and Ethiopia are the other teams in their qualifying section.
NFF President, Aminu Maigari, said Siasia is a good choice to lead the country to many successes.
