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.”
