Finidi George Sacked as Head Coach of Nigeria Super Eagles

Nigeria Super Eagles have parted ways with Finidi George as their head coach following a string of disappointing results. The decision comes after the team's recent 1-1 draw against South Africa and a 2-1 loss to Benin Republic in the 2026 World Cup Qualifiers.

Despite the setback, there remains a potential avenue for George to continue contributing to the team, as he could still work as a member of the coaching staff. However, the Nigerian Football Federation has announced plans to bring in a foreign technical adviser in the coming weeks.

The decision to relieve George of his duties stems from the team's underwhelming performance under his leadership, which has seen the Super Eagles languishing in 5th position on the Group C log of the 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers with just three points.

As the search for a new head coach begins, the Nigerian Football Federation will undoubtedly be looking for someone who can rejuvenate the team and guide them to success in future competitions.
