Finidi George Resigns as Super Eagles Coach

Finidi George

The head coach of the Super Eagles, Finidi Quits has resigned from his position following disparity with the NIgeria Football Association, NFF.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the Finidi had issues when they disclosed their plans to hire a foreign technical adviser for the team, after their glorified 1-2 defeat by Benin Republic.

He had hitted argument with the Sports Minister, John Owan Enoch in their meeting when was blaming players for their loses.

The Eagles are currently 5th in a six- team group C involving South Africa, Rwanda, Benin, Zimbabwe and Lesotho which Nigeria were originally seen as favourites.

Nigeria has slight chances to qualify for the 2026 FIFA world cup to be co-hosted by USA, Canada and Mexico.

The Eagles have made it to every world cup tournament since after making their first appearance in ’94 except in 2006, and 2022 which they failed to qualify.

Nigerians are waiting for the announcement of the new foreign expatriate who will oversee the team’s remaining world cup qualifying matches and the preparations for the 2025 Africa cup of nations (AFCON) as promised by the NFF.

It’s ideal to note here that the senior national team (Super Eagles) has not been faring well with either technical adviser or head coach in recent times at the end of their contract or when resigning.

We urge NFF to get the best coach that prepare the Super Eagles for the 2025 Nations Cup and 2026 World Cup during their qualifying matches.
