The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will on Monday in Abuja formally present to the public, Finidi George, as the new head coach of the Senior Men National Team, Super Eagles.

Minister of Sports Development, John Owan Enoh, alongside the permanent secretary in the ministry, Mrs Tinuke Watti, president of NFF, Alhaji Ibrahim Musa Gusau, and the NFF general secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, are among the prominent personalities expected at the unveiling.

George led two-time CAF Champions League winners Enyimba FC, won the tough-as-nails Nigeria elite division title with the People’s Elephant in his second season, and has left the club with a chance of retaining the title this season, with six matches to go.

The 52-year-old spent 20 months as assistant to Portuguese José Peseiro from the summer of 2022, during which the Super Eagles qualified for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations and came within 28 minutes of a fourth African title in Cote d’Ivoire three months ago.

George, who as a player won 62 caps for Nigeria at the senior level, during which he won the Africa Cup of Nations gold, silver, and bronze, and played in two FIFA World Cup finals now has the immediate task of picking maximum points from 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against South Africa (home) and Benin Republic (away) in a few weeks.
