The NFF recently appointed a former winger to lead their national team on an interim basis. During his initial stint, he achieved mixed results, with a victory over Ghana and a loss to Mali. Nevertheless, his performance was impressive enough for the NFF to appoint him as the long-term coach for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations and the subsequent FIFA World Cup. The new coach, George, previously served as an assistant to Jose Santos Peseiro for 20 months.

Following Peseiro’s departure, George took charge on an interim basis during two friendly matches in Morocco. The upcoming match against their rival, Cote d’Ivoire, holds significance as Nigeria previously emerged victorious in the last edition of the Africa Cup of Nations. The focus now shifts to the upcoming showdown on 3 June, with a spot in the 2026 FIFA World Cup at stake. This high-stakes match will be crucial for both teams.
