Super Eagles head coach, Austin Eguavoen, has resigned from his role following Nigeria’s 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff defeat to the Black Stars of Ghana.
Nigeria missed out on the qualifying spot after the team played a 1-1 draw with the black stars of Ghana. Per Away goals rule, Ghana’s single goal scored at the M.K.O Abiola Stadium on Tuesday, was enough to secure their place in Qatar.
Brila FM, reports that Eguavoen has sent an official resignation letter to the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, stating his decision to resign.
The Sports radio station said Eguavoen will now return to his role as Technical Director of all national teams. However, the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF is yet to release an official statement.
The NFF had handed a two-year contract to Eguavoen two days before the first leg of the World Cup play-off against Ghana.
