Samson Siasia, former gaffer of the Super Eagles, is among eight coaches being considered to head the Rwandan national football team.

His biggest rival for the job is Winifried Schafer, who won the 2002 African Cup of Nations with Cameroon.

Siasia, who made his name as a top international striker, scored 16 goals for the Nigerian national team in 51 games before he took to coaching.

In 2005, he coached the Nigerian U-20 team (Flying Eagles), taking them to the finals of both the 2005 U-20 World Cup and the U-20 African Youth Championship.

He won the AYC and got to the final of the world championships, losing 2-1 to Argentina.

In 2008, he coached the Nigerian U-23 Olympic squad to the final against Argentina.

On November 4, 2010, he was named national team coach, succeeding Lars Largerbak.

His latest effort with the Nigerian team was braving the odds and overcoming both on and off pitch challenges to win Nigeria’s only medal, a bronze, at the 2016 Olympics football tournament in Rio, Brazil.

Rwanda have been without a permanent coach since Jonny McKinstry was sacked in August last year.
