Samson Siasia has described Brown Ideye as the future of the Super Eagles and says the striker will get his chance soon.

Ideye was again left out of the Nigeria squad named on Tuesday by Siasia, but the coach says he remains in the picture.

'Ideye will still have his chance soon because he and other players Nosa Igiebor and Anthny Ujah are the future of the team,' Siasia said.

'Unfortunately, at this moment we have a lot of strikers and they have all been playing together and developing an understanding with each other.'

Ideye, however, remains on standby in the event any of the called up forwards is unable to make the squad.
