As Super Eagles Exit AFCON 2021, Eguavoen Steps Down




Interim coach of the Nigeria national team, Super Eagles, Augustine Eguavoen allegedly steps down after the Super Eagles’ 1-0 defeat to Tunisia in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations round of 16 clash on Sunday.

Eguavoen had led the three-time champions to three straight wins against Egypt, Sudan and Guinea-Bissau.

However, they fell short against a Covid-stricken Tunisian team in the knockout stages.

Eguavoen said after the match “What happens next is that I’m the interim coach and Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

“I will go back to my position and allow the NFF make a decision on the way forward,”

However, the NFF announced Jose Peseiro as the new permanent coach before the AFCON kicked off.

Eguavoen stepped in after Gernot Rohr was sacked last month.
