NFF names Finidi George as Super Eagles Head Coach


April 30, 2024

The Board of Nigeria Football Federation has approved the recommendation of its Technical and Development Committee, to appoint Finidi George as Head Coach of the Senior Men National Football Team, Super Eagles.

The 52-year-old George, a member of the so-styled ‘Golden Generation’ that won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Tunisia, who spent 20 months as assistant to José Santos Peseiro during the 2023 AFCON in Cote d’Ivoire, took charge of the squad in interim capacity during two friendly matches in Morocco last month.

George’s immediate task will be to guide the Super Eagles to victory in two 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against South Africa and Benin Republic in Uyo and Abidjan respectively, in a little over five weeks.
