NFF Initiates Search for Foreign Coach/Technical Adviser Following Super Eagles' Disappointing Performance

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has taken decisive action in response to the Super Eagles' lackluster performance in the ongoing 2026 World Cup qualifiers. After a series of disappointing results, including just three points from the first four qualifiers, the NFF has announced plans to hire a foreign technical adviser.

In a statement released following an executive committee meeting on Wednesday, June 12, the NFF expressed regret over the team's "dismal output and very poor returns." This move comes amidst mounting criticism of Finidi George's tenure as head coach, with concerns raised over squad selection and overall performance.

While the statement did not explicitly address Finidi George's future, it strongly implies a change in leadership is imminent. The NFF's decision to seek an expatriate technical adviser underscores their commitment to revitalize the team and restore its competitive edge.

With the Super Eagles currently sitting fifth in their World Cup qualifying group, the new technical adviser faces the daunting task of orchestrating a turnaround in fortunes. However, their immediate focus will be on guiding the team through the upcoming 2025 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, ensuring Nigeria's participation in the continental tournament.

The NFF's bold move reflects their determination to address the team's shortcomings and usher in a new era of success for Nigerian football. As the search for a foreign coach commences, anticipation grows over who will assume the helm and lead the Super Eagles into a brighter future.
