Gusau: Finidi Must Qualify Super Eagles For AFCON 2025; 2026 World Cup

President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Ibrahim Gusau has said Super Eagles head coach Finidi George has the mandate to qualify the Super Eagles for the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations and 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Gusau also debunked rumours the NFF committed Finidi to a one-year contract.

Finidi was unveiled by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) this week.

“I don’t know where the one -year contract information emanated from, all I know is that, as far as our contract with Finidi is concerned, he is going to be in charge of the team till the end of 2026, so I don’t think 2026 is going to be a one- year contract,”Gusau said on Soccer Africa, a popular TV Show in South Africa.

“The key thing is, in every contract there must be some indices and some targets that you must put in place for somebody in other for him to get optimal performance, and the first target is to qualify the team for next year’s Nations Cup and to get to at least the semi finals of the Nations Cup, as well as qualify the team to the World Cup and to get us the target of playing in the quarter finals of the World Cup”

“So these are the main targets we put in place for him in the contract, and by the grace of God, we are working hard to see how we can achieve that” he stated.

    If I am given the post of EFCC head I will start by arresting Pinnick and this man. I don’t know why I dislike their news judging by how they have handled our football with all deceitful attitude. CS please stop posting them so that we can start the day on a bright note.
