NFF set to appoint Super Eagles technical adviser - Daily Post Nigeria

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

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 1-1 against Bafana Bafana and recorded a disappointing 2-1 loss against Benin Republic.

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

“The executive committee wholeheartedly apologized 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,” reads part of the communiqué released by the NFF.

“Further to the 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.”
