Head Coach of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, Augustine Eguavoen, has resigned from his post.
This comes after Nigeria were denied a place at Qatar 2022, by Ghana’s Black Stars in the final playoff round.
Eguavoen took charge of the Super Eagles before AFCON 2021, after former coach, Gernot Rohr, was sacked due to unsatisfactory performances during the first round of FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
The former Super Eagles full back, Eguavoen, initially stepped down after Nigeria’s Round 16 exit at the AFCON in Cameroon, but was rehired to take charge of the final playoff round against Ghana.
Nigeria were eliminated by virtue of the away goal rule after drawing 1-1 at home in the return leg, with the first leg in Ghana ending goalless.
He has stated that he will now return to his former position as the Technical Director of the NFF.
The Super Eagles we’re hoping to qualify for their fourth straight World Cup finals, before defeat to Ghana.
