Finidi George Appointed as New Super Eagles Head Coach

The Nigeria Football Federation has appointed Finidi George as the new head coach of the Super Eagles, surpassing Emmanuel Amuneke for the position.

George, a former international player, previously served as assistant to José Santos Peseiro for 20 months until Peseiro’s departure after the Africa Cup of Nations runner-up position in 2023.

George led the squad in an interim capacity during two recent friendly matches in Morocco.

His immediate focus is guiding the team to victory in two crucial 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against South Africa and Benin Republic. These matches are vital as the Super Eagles currently trail in third place in Group C, behind Rwanda and South Africa.
