NFF names Finidi George as the new head coach of the Super Eagles.

Finidi George has been named the new head coach of the Super Eagles, according to a statement from the Nigeria Football Federation.

The former international was hired before Emmanuel Amuneke.

George led the team in an acting capacity during two friendlies in Morocco last month. George served as José Santos Peseiro’s assistant for 20 months before the Portugueseman resigned the position voluntarily after finishing second at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

In just over five weeks, George’s first assignment will be to lead the Super Eagles to success in their two 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against South Africa and Benin Republic in Uyo and Abidjan, respectively.

The matches are must-win encounters, with the Super Eagles lagging behind in third place in Group C of the African campaign behind Rwanda and South Africa.
