The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) executive committee has mandated one of its sub-committees to “within the next five days” recommend a new coaching crew for the Super Eagles.

The mandate is one of the decisions taken at NFF’s executive committee’s first formal meeting since Nigeria’s failure to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup billed for Qatar.

The meeting, held on Tuesday in Abuja and attended both in-person and virtually by 14 members, asked the Technical and Development Sub-Committee to make the recommendations.

The sub-committee “is responsible for the selection of coaches through its recommendations to the executive committee.”

Aside from the expected recommendations on the Super Eagles coaching crew, the sub-committee is also to recommend new coaching crews for three other national teams within this same period of five days.

These are the CHAN (African Nations Championship) team, also known as the Home-based Super Eagles, the under-20 male team (Flying Eagles) and the under-17 male team (Golden Eaglets).

“This is to ensure that preparations for their next qualifying tournaments and championships commence in earnest,” the NFF communique stated.

The Technical and Development Sub-Committee works with members of the NFF Technical Department.

The department is headed by the immediate-past Super Eagles technical adviser, Augustine Eguavoen, NFF’s technical director.
