Siasia first capped the Spartak Moscow star two years ago and he told MTNFootball.com the big centre-forward will soon have the football world under his feet.
“He is a complete striker, getting the goals and creating chances for others to score. He has all it takes to be among the best strikers in the world, he will certainly go places,” Siasia told MTNFootball.com
“I know his qualities as a striker and that was why I went ahead to cap him to the Eagles. I am very happy with his performance so far at the Nations Cup.
“I love his commitment. He is using his strength and speed very well.”
The 25-year-old Emenike made his long-awaited international debut against Sierra Leone in Lagos in 2011, but it was shortlived as he lasted less than 20 minutes after he suffered an injury.
He scored his first Eagles goal against Argentina in a friendly in June 2011 and he has now netted three goals to propel Nigeria to Wednesday’s semi-final of the AFCON.
