The Nigeria Football Federation officials have stated that they will release a shortlist of candidates for the position of Super Eagles coach on Friday. The confirmation of the release date comes amidst reports of a stormy session when the Executive Board members held a joint meeting with the Technical Committee members on Friday.
For the shortlist, the federation’s Technical and Development Committee has set a deadline of Wednesday, 6th July for interested candidates to apply for the position.
Chairman of the committee, Chris Green, told sources that applications are expected from all persons who feel they are qualified for the position.
“We encourage applications from all highly -qualified persons, whether they be Nigerians or expatriates. Applications are welcome until Wednesday, and the Technical and Development Committee will meet on Friday to look through all applications and release a short-list,” Green stated.
The Super Eagles are away to Zambia’s Chipolopolo on October 3 in their first match of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers and will then host Algeria on November 7. They will then host Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions on August 28, 2017 and visit the Lions five days later, before hosting Zambia a month after and then rounding off the series by visiting Algeria on November 7, 2017.
