NFF Executive Board Member Nse Essien stated in his statement that they were not satisfied with the national team coach Jose Peseiro.
Noting that they cannot dismiss the coach because the NFF does not have the money to pay compensation, Essien said, “Everyone is calling for the dismissal of the coach. We have only two out of six possible points. We are in a sad and very dangerous situation.” he said.
Nigeria’s chances of qualifying for the 2026 FIFA World Cup are seriously jeopardized following the Super Eagles’ two draws against Lesotho and Zimbabwe in their first two qualifying matches.
While Portuguese coach Peseiro was criticized after the bad results, Nigeria, which did not qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup held in Qatar, will face South Africa in the next qualifying match.
