Super Eagles coach Austin Eguavoen has resigned after the Nigerian senior men’s team failed to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup scheduled for Qatar between November and December 2022.
Nigeria, on Tuesday played a 1-ALL draw with Ghana at Moshood Abiola National Stadium Abuja, but could not go through due to an away goal deficit.
Originally hired as the Technical Director for the Nigeria Football Federation, the NFF drafted in as the emergency replacement for Gernot Rohr when the NFF sacked the Franco-German in December 2021, barely two weeks before the commencement of the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
After the match, there have been increased calls for the President of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick to also resign.
To discuss this development, Kunle Sholaja, sports analyst joins me on the news.
