With the growing calls for EPL duo, Odion Ighalo and Mikel Obi to be listed as overage members of the Dream Team VI squad for the Rio 2016 Men’s football Tournament, Coach of the side, Samson Siasia has stated that the overage slots will only be used for positions where they’d be relevant.

On Tuesday, former U-23 coach, Austin Eguavoen suggested that Ighalo and Mikel Obi be invited to the team as two of three overage players.

Eguavoen made a case for Ighalo as a match winner because of his style of player. However, though Siasia claims he appreciates the opinions on the matter he insists the decision to pick overage players will be tactical and be based on the needs of the team.
