Nigeria names a new Super Eagles head coach to succeed Eguavoen

This was revealed yesterday Sunday May 15th, 2022, by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

The statement asked Peseiro to return to work as the coach of one of Africa’s most renowned national teams as soon as possible.

Austin Eguavoen, the last indigenous manager of the Super Eagles, departed a few months ago.

After winning all of their group matches, Eguavoen was eliminated from the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

He also failed to qualify Nigeria for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, when the Super Eagles were defeated by the Ghanaian Black Stars on the away goals rule.

Jose Peseiro had a previous deal with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) that fell through months ago, according to MySportDab.

The NFF, on the other hand, claims that the contract details have been finalized and agreed upon, and that Peseiro will resume his duties immediately.

“We expect Peseiro to take charge of the Super Eagles’ next friendlies and tour of the United States of America,” says the statement.

Former Nigerian international Finidi George is slated to work alongside Peseiro as the Super Eagles’ next coach.

Salisu Yusuf, who will head the home-based Eagles, has also been confirmed as the 2nd Assistant Coach.
