Nigeria manager Samson Siasia confirmed this when he spoke to Egypt's leading football website, KingFut.

“They have a chance of course. It takes time to watch all the players.

“We will watch everyone but it is a hard task to watch all players at the same time,” Siasia told Kingfut.

“As you saw, we called up a lot of players to our camp so everyone has a chance. We will definitely take a look at everyone but it is hard to look at all the players at the same time.

Siasia also admitted that the knowledge of Egyptian football by his assistant and former Eagles teammate, Emmanuel Amuneke, has been an advantage in Nigeria's quest to defeat the Pharaohs on March 25 and March 29.

“Of course, he knows you guys. He knows Egypt as he played there before. He knows you guys well so he has passed on some recommendations which will definitely help us,” Siasia told KingFut.

The home-based Super Eagles players have begun camping for the games in Kaduna and Alexandria while the foreign legion join them next week at the Bolton White Apartment camp after their weekend club commitments.
