The Super Eagles of Nigeria has announced Finidi George as the new head coach, with Daniel Amokachi as his assistant. The unveiling ceremony was held at the Media Centre of the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on Monday morning and was attended by the leaders of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF).

During the unveiling, the Minister noted “Any country I find an indigenous coach sitting on the bench, I always feel very proud and I am glad that we have an opportunity that have a Nigerian coach, Finidi George, as football men national team coach.”

Following the departure of Portuguese coach Jose Peseiro, the former Real Betis winger was given a permanent position having served Peseiro in an assistance capacity during the last African Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast where the team finished second place.

George’s appointment was announced a few weeks ago after he took charge of the team on an interim basis for the doubleheader international friendly against Ghana and Mali. His first assignment as the substantive Head Coach will be the 2026 World Cup qualifier against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in June.
