    All these appointments aren’t so clear. Ghana already have a technical director. What is Chris’ role as a technical advisor?

    The statement appears to say that the coach is Otto Addo, while Chris has an advisory role.

    Or am I the one confusing the whole thing ?

    There is no doubt Nigeria has good team, but remember Tunisia was able to defeat Nigeria, it would be a disaster if Nigeria failed to qualify for the World Cup 2024 in Qatar.Equaveon is not good enough to handle the Super Eagle of Nigeria, after 90 minutes we shall see who will be crying which will be the citizens of Nigeria good luck with the experiment Amija Pinick.

      Who do you think we would have appointed if Eguavoen is not the technical adviser of Super Eagles?

    Tactically, Eguavon is not good.
    I love him personally but to me he is not proactive at all.
    Nigeria need coach who is tactically sound because some matches won by coach not players.

      Well said Mr Kunle. We lost to Tunisia because their coach was more tactical . Eguavoen never studied the Tunisian team hence he paid for his ignorance. The technical team the babalawo bearded looking Amaju has inaugurated has nothing to offer .

  • At least I’m happy now….

    This man has not coach in Africa before…. He’s a novice to African football and its style of play….

    This reminds me of how Rohr tactically & technically dismantled two world class soccer idols ( SEEDOF & KLUIVERT in 2019 AFCON ) who were novice to African soccer and the history behind NIGERIA-CAMEROUN battle of superiority.

    Nigeria-Ghana fixtures are always a battle of superiority hence novice (COACHES) aren’t welcomed.

    For Ghana to make this kind of mistake shows that Nigerians’ prayers is working, infact we’re already in Qatar come what come may.

    If inept, PE, Belmadi boy & Mechanic coach ( ROHR) can do it against the then defending champions Cameroon who hired two novice (to African football) coaches, I see no reason why our technical, tactical and attacking football coach shouldn’t.

    With this error made by the Ghanaian FA, every Nigerian should be rest assured that we’re already in Qatar.

    Nothing can stop us…. We all know the road is already smooth for a smooth ride hence no room for excuse(s).

    Hughton doesn’t know the impact it will generate hence he may take the game so lightly.

    We’re already in Qatar.

    Tell our “let’s fail with our own” ppl we’ll not entertain any excuse.

      the chris houghton is a good coach. he has more tactical knowledge than amuneke and eguaveon put together.

      Nigeria is not qualifying for World Cup
