The entire super eagles coaching crew have been sent packing after failing to qualify for the 2022 world cup.

According to a release by the Nigeria football federation, Eguavoen left the role while the others were asked to go.

The super eagles’ coaching crew includes, Amuneke, the goalkeeper trainer Alloy Agu, and Joseph Yobo.

A statement from the NFF reads. “The erstwhile Technical Adviser, Augustine Eguavoen has stepped down from that position with immediate effect”.


Earlier, reports says the federation gave a two years contract just before the first leg in Kumasi, but it’s now off the table.
