NFF Set To Hire Foreign Coach For Super Eagles


The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has concluded arrangement to appoint an expatriate coach for the Super Eagles.

This was contained in a communique of the meeting of the NFF Executive Committee held in hybrid mode on Wednesday, 12th June 2024. The NFF said it took the decision following the Super Eagles dismal display in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic.

The West Africans battled to a 1-1 against South Africa’s Bafana Bafana and fell to a disappointing 2-1 loss versus Benin Republic.

The Super Eagles, who now sit in fifth position on the Group C table face the risk of missing out on a place at the 2026 World Cup.

The Executive Committee apologised to Nigerians over the abysmal performances of the Super Eagles in the 2026 world cup qualifying series.

The Executive Committee wholeheartedly apologised to Nigerians for the dismal output and subsequent very poor returns of the Senior Men National Team, Super Eagles, in four out of 10 matches in the ongoing qualification series for the 2026 FIFA World Cup finals, and pledged to work assiduously and put necessary measures in place to ensure a better-prepared squad ahead of the AFCON 2025 qualifiers in September this year and the resumption of the World Cup qualifiers in March 2025.”

“Further to (1) above, the Executive Committee resolved to employ an expatriate Technical Adviser for the Super Eagles in the coming weeks, ahead of the AFCON qualifiers and the remaining FIFA World Cup qualifying matches.”

“Still further to (1) above, the Committee resolved to beef up the NFF Technical Department with more qualitative hands. Equally, the Technical and Development Sub-Committee will be re-jigged with immediate effect.”
