Finidi George Appointed As Super Eagles Coach

Finidi George has been named the new coach of the Super Eagles, as announced by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Monday through a statement on its official website.

The statement reads in part, “The Board of Nigeria Football Federation on Monday approved the recommendation of its Technical and Development Committee to appoint former ace winger Finidi George as Head Coach of the Senior Men National Football Team, Super Eagles.”

George, who served as assistant to former coach Jose Peseiro for 20 months, took on interim leadership of the senior national team in March. During his tenure, the Enyimba coach oversaw the Super Eagles’ two friendly matches against Ghana and Mali in Morocco.

In the first encounter against Ghana, George’s team achieved a historic victory, defeating the Black Stars 2-1 and ending an 18-year winless streak against the formidable opponent. However, in the subsequent game against Mali, the team suffered a setback, losing 0-2.

A prominent figure from Nigeria’s revered ‘Golden Generation,’ George notably clinched the Africa Cup of Nations title in 1994 and represented Nigeria in the FIFA World Cup finals in the same year, where the team emerged as the second most entertaining side in their debut appearance.

With 62 caps for Nigeria, George’s illustrious career spans multiple tournaments, including the FIFA World Cup and AFCON, where he earned gold, silver, and bronze medals across various editions from 1992 to 2002.
