  • Good development. Any updates on the two friendlies scheduled to be played in one day?

  • One of the numerous reasons why I like the Sudanese FA. Hubert Velud, the French former Coach got fired for dismal performances with the Sudanese national team. Immediately the FA appointed Burhan Tia, a local coach to superintend the young team. Sudan could play 2 friendlies in a day and who knows, with the seriousness of Tia, they might even play 3 friendlies in a day. But here, our NFF is still on search of a foreign Coach instead of encouraging the locals for perfection. Nigeriaaaaa, who do us?

    I know that our case is that the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) is confused and don’t know what to do, whether to allow the local Coaches to continue or hire a foreigner.
    However, Africans need to take a firm stand and believe in their own.
    Algeria today is a success story and I don’t think they will ever allow a foreigner to coach their national team.
    As for Sudan, Mr. Kamal Hamid Shaddad, the Sudanese FA president was furious when in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers alongside Morocco, Guinea-Bissau and Guinea, Velud’s team finished bottom of the group with three points from six matches. The worse came at the FIFA Arab Cup 2021 Sudan lost 4-0 in the opening match to Algeria, before suffering 5-0 defeat to Egypt and a 1-0 loss to Lebanon. It is already rumoured that Burhan Tia is being offered a 4 year contract running till 2026.
