The Super Eagles Interim Coach, Augustine Eguavoen, has quit his position following the team’s failure to book their place in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Nigerian Super Eagles lost the World Cup ticket to the arch-rival and neighbour, Black Stars of Ghana after they played out draws on both legs but edged the Nigerian national team on away goal rule.

According to Brilla FM, Eguavoen has sent an official resignation letter to the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), to step down as the head coach but will return to his role as Technical Director of all national teams.

However, the NFF is yet to release an official statement.

Despite Eguavoen’s not too good show at the 2022 AFCON, where he his team qualified from the group stages with 9 points but got evicted in the second round by Tunisia, a team which qualified on best loser, the NFF went ahead and handed him a two-year contract two days before the first leg of the World Cup play-off against Ghana.

But it is clear that the Super Eagles will soon have a new coach, now that Eguavoen has tender his resignation.

Meanwhile, Nigerians are calling for a total overhaul of the football federation, the whole coaching crew, as well as the players.
