After a closed-door meeting with the Sports Minister, Sunday Dare, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the ministry of sports have agreed to appoint a foreign coach for the Super Eagles.

The appointment of a new head coach for the Super Eagles has become necessary following Nigeria’s inability to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The Black Stars of Ghana denied Nigeria’s Super Eagles the chance to qualify for the World Cup last month after a 1-1 aggregate draw at the end of the two legs of the playoff tie of the African qualifiers.

Thanks to the cruel away goal rule, the Black Stars won the tie and qualified to participate in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Unimpressed with the performance of the technical team of the Super Eagles, the NFF has parted ways with all personnel after they agreed to resign.

On Monday, April 4, 2022, Nigeria’s Sports Ministry held a crunch meeting with the NFF and has agreed to bring in a foreign coach to take charge of the Super Eagles.
