The Nigeria Football Federation has announced that they are currently accepting applications from qualified coaches for the open positions of Super Eagles coach and coach of the national U-17 team, the Golden Eaglets.

Despite guiding the West African nation to their first Africa Cup of Nations final in ten years, the NFF couldn’t come to terms with Portuguese tactician Jose Peseiro.
