On Monday, the board of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) approved the recommendation of its Technical Development Committee to appoint Finidi.

The former winger spent 20 months as assistant to Jose Peseiro before the Portuguese voluntarily left the post, after leading the team to a second place finish at the AFCON 2023 in Côte d’Ivoire.

After the departure of Peseiro, Finidi was appointed on an interim capacity during two friendly games against Ghana and Mali in Marrakech Morocco.

In the two friendly games, the Eagles edged Ghana 2-1 and lost 2-0 to Mali.

The 52-year-old’s immediate task will be the Group C 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic in June.

Currently, the Eagles are in third place on two points after two games.

    Let me join many others in congratulating the new Super Eagles gaffer, Coach Finidi. God shall give you all that’s needed to keep triumphing to our maximum enjoyment. I can’t wait to watch our darling team defeating Bafana Bafana and coach Rohr under your tutelage. Good luck!

    CONGRATULATIONS TO FINITO. BUT NFF SHOULD HAVE EMPLOY A COACH THAT IS HIGHLY TECHNICAL & CAN BE RESPECTED BY PLAYERS.
    THE REASON WHY SOME EX-PLAYERS AND SOME PRESENT SUPER EAGLE PLAYERS ARE IN SUPPORT OF INDIGENOUS COACH(especially Finidi) IS BECAUSE THAT, IT WILL BE VERY EASY FOR THEM TO PENETRATE IN HIM, CONTROLLING HIM & DICTATING TO HIM WHEN IT COMES TO PLAYERS SELECTION, WHICH IT CANNOT BE POSSIBLE ON FOREIGN COACH. ALSO, IT WILL BE VERY EASY TO DO BUSINESS BY INTRODUCING PLAYERS TO INDIGENOUS COACH AFTER COLLECTING BRIBE FROM SUCH PLAYERS.
    ** NOTE: We should not be deceiving ourselves in this country because of the way things work for other countries (e.g. Democracy work well in America, S/Africa, Ghana but it doesn’t work well in Nigeria).
    THE WAY THINGS WORK FOR COACH H. SHEHATA(EGYPT), COACH ALIOU CISSE(SENEGAL) BY WINNING AFCON FOR THEIR COUNTY (and also qualified for next AFCON easily) MAY NOT WORK IN NIGERIA DUE TO CORRUPTION, IMPROPER PLANNING, LACK OF STRUCTURES, BAD MANAGEMENT.
    IN NIGERIA, WE ARE TOO RELIGIONISTIC, REGIONISTIC, TRIBALISTIC & SENTIMENTAL.
    EVEN when Keshi won AFCON in 2013, he failed woefully to qualified for next AFCON due to bad management(Pinnick VS Giwa), sentiment, jealous, hatred towards some players (e.g. Yobo, I.K. uche, V.moses).
    **** NFF HAVE SHOULD GO FOR THE BEST COACH.***
    What matters most is to move our football forward & not celebrating FLUKE WINNING again. We struggle/manage to beat CIV by penalty in group stage. But E/guinea beat CIV 4-0 convincingly.
    *** KESHI WON AFCON IN 2013, BUT WE CANNOT BOAST OF PLAYERS, THE TEAM FOR THE FUTURE (for instance: Sunday MBA, Uzoenyi, Oshaniwa, Agbim are nowhere to be found in future football). AND NIGERIA FAILED TO QUALIFIED FOR NEXT TWO CONSECUTIVE AFCON.
    WHAT A SHAME!!!!
    **** WESTERHOF WIN AFCON IN 1994, BUT NIGERIA CAN BOAST OF PLAYERS & FUTURE FOOTBALL (for instance: Oliseh, Okocha, Amokachi, Amuneke shine for future football).
    WHAT A BRIGHTER FUTURE!!!!!
    ### NFF SHOULD HAVE EMPLOY A GOOD DISCIPLINE, TACTICAL, HIGHLY RESPECTED COACH ###
