Finidi George

Assistant coach of Super Eagles, Finidi George, has explained that the men’s football senior national team is in a rebuilding phase, following a series of defeats.

It should be recalled that the Eagles, in January 2022, crashed out of the Africa Cup of Nations in the round of 16 following a perfect performance in the group stage.

The Nigerian football club also would not appear at the Qatar 2022 World Cup after losing out to Ghana on goal aggregate. This led to the exit of interim coach Austine Eguavoen in March.


Meanwhile, in May 2022, the Nigeria Football Federation announced Portuguese, Jose Peseiro as the new Eagles head coach with Finidi as the first assistant.

Speaking about the recent series of losses, Finidi stated:

We’ve had a couple of sessions, while in Dallas and I think we liked it. We are building and the building process has started and we’ll see how far we can push the players. It’s been good so far. Let’s see how the second game will go.

He added;


It’s still a building process and a draw won’t be a bad result. If we have the victory, we will take it. If we can have a draw and play a good game, we will all accept it and go back home and build on that.

Nigerians would have to trust the new managing team to rebuilding the national football team and wait patiently for better results from Super Eagles.
