Exclusive: Eguavoen Will Lead Eagles To AFCON 2021 Glory – Aikhoumogbe

Former Nigerian goalkeeper, Andrew Aikhoumogbe believes Super Eagles interim coach, Austine Eguavoen has what it takes to lead the team to glory in the forthcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Aikhoumogbe stated this in an interview with Completesports.com from his Cairo base in Egypt, where he admonished the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to provide a perfect atmosphere for Eguavoen to work.


He also described the sacking of Gernot Rohr as a welcome development considering how the Super Eagles struggled to qualify for the final playoff of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

“I don’t think we can question the decision of the NFF to appoint Augustine Eguavoen as the Interim coach of the Super Eagles. At this point, since he’s the head of the Technical department, I want to believe that he definitely knows his onions.

“Without mincing words, I am confident Eguavoen can lead the team to glory in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations if he utilises the potentials that are at his disposal. The NFF must also ensure they give him the freedom to exercise his technical knowledge on the team.”

    When the competition is about to be cancelled…

    • OJON ABIODUN 7 months ago

      The competition will go on as planned but it will be restricted to strict COVID-19 protocols and traveling fans might not even be allowed into cameroon

  • Oseodion Inegbenebor 7 months ago

    Thanks Aikhoumogbe, I will however allay my fears for that fact Coach Eguavoen has been there before, having taken the Super Eagles to Egypt06 where they won bronze otherwise, the 2 weeks is too short for preparations. By and large, he has another opportunity to do more this time.

  • Gowetok 7 months ago

    He loves talents. He was the one who gave Mikel Obi and Taiye Taiwo their break through in the SE set up. The biggest undoing of Rohr was the fact he allowed some players to be untouchable.All that will definitely change under Euguavon and S.E will look solid again

    • Dr Banks 7 months ago

      Haha guys, Mikel Obi and Taiwo were big revelations and performed exceptionally well at the 2005 U-20 hence they automatically graduated to SE. Eguavoen did not discover or developed them so cannot take credit for that

      • mercy 7 months ago

        Mikel first national team outing was in finland 2003 u17 with Eguavoen where they unfortunately lost out at the group stage by a tossed coin.

        • Mahmud Shuaib 7 months ago

          Pls tell the loud mouthed history twister @Dr. Banks and his co travelers.

          Did Rohr reward talents like Eguavoen? Lets even agree that it was after U20 under Sia 1 that the duo first emerged, didnt Egauvoen subsequently integrate them to SE?

          Juxtapose with ROHR who with all exploits of Awoniyi, Dessers, Onyedika, Alhassan, Izuchukwu, Adeleye etc he didnt trust them enough to blood them against lowly oppositions like CAR, Cape Verde etc. Even the double header friendly against CAMEROON, he failed to invite Amoo and co.

          I insist, he was too timid, scared as hell to take risks.

          • Dr Banks 7 months ago

            No wahala guy, let’s see how your Eguavoen will turn SE into Jankara market soon. He will listen to you and invite any plater that scores 1 goal in Europe, then drop him the following month when another player hug headline for 1 week again and the circle goes on.

            You don’t build a National team by inviting every Dick and Harry each time you camp, it’s so unfortunate that you are all bereft of ideas just like your useless Pinnick who cannot run an Ordinary FA without running to Sports Minister for ill-advice. You all will soon see sege, siddon dey look

            Your consortium of failed coaches shall soon take you all back to the doldrum

    Nothing do you, Egu. Pls wear our national colors when next you are in the news, you are now Nigerian national team coach.

  • MONKEY POST 7 months ago

    That is how all this Rohr haters and “let’s fail with our own” people will be lying everywhere in the forum. Eguavon gave TAYE TAIWO which break in the SE??? I might agree with you on Mikel obi but not on the former. Oga TAYE TAIWO got his SE break in November 17 2004 unfortunately we lost that game 2-1 to south Africa under “chairman” CHRISTIAN CHUKWU and not under “una own”. Eguavon.

    • Mahmud Shuaib 7 months ago

      Mr Rohr lover…why not leave this fprum in peace for we Rohr haters since its very obvious we are the winners and you are the sore losers?

      I recall you and your jaundiced group of retrogressives telling all who care to go hug transformer as NFF will not sack Rohr because he met all requirements. You also arrogantly claim NFF was too broke to find the money to settle Rohr.

      Pls how market mr Monkey bamama? Lol

      You can pack your bag and baggages and follow Rohr to wherever he is.

      A coach who had no single technical or tactical input to her Eagles play rather than select 11 strange bed fellows and ask them to chase the ball around for 90 minutes.

      How can he have any input when he stays in his hotel business and only come to Nigeria and gather players to play.

      Fraudulent contract by a big fraud.

      Only a corrupt Nigeria will employ a coach sacked by NIGER..a country with less population and development than Kano state.

      Only a fraud will invite Saudi based Ighalo at the expense of German based Awoniyi

      Only a fraud will invite a bench warming John Noble at the expense of Olorunleke

      Onlyba fraud will invite a bench warming segunda Liga Omeruo at the expense of a regular playing Izuchukwu Anthony

      Only a fraud will start a German 2nd division Jamilu at the expense of a Porto first team Zaidu

      Only a fraud will bench a seria A starting Aina for a Moses Simon

      Only a fraud will bench Chukwueze and Ejuke and start Ighalo

      Bye bye to oshi radarada

  • Well you are entitle to your opinion on Rohr but we wait to see how you will rant after your consortium of coaches uses those players you mentioned above. The judgement day is near just wait and see if the new coaches will actually dance to your tune lubbish

    • Dr Banks 7 months ago

      @Tayo don’t mind them, shame no catch them say Picnic dash them consortium of failed coaches and they are rejoicing over such. We shall see
