Eguavoen Steps Down As Super Eagles Coach

Augustine Eguavoen has stepped down from the position of Head Coach for the Super Eagles following the failure of Nigeria to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The NFF has in the meantime withdrawn the two-and-half years contract offered the coaches and terminated the appointment of the entire technical crew of the team with immediate effect. A new crew will be announced after a proper review to lead the new charge of reinvigorating the Super Eagles to face future challenges appropriately.

“We thank the coaches and team officials for their service to the nation and wish them success in their future endeavours,” said NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi.

Eguavoen has faced increased calls to resign after his failure to overcome Ghana over two legs of the World Cup play-off.

He was handed the two-years contract two days before the first leg of the World Cup play-off against Ghana.
