Sudan-Based Coach, Mohammed: How I’m Qualified For Golden Eaglets Job

Head coach of Sudanese Premier League side Hilal Al-Fasher, Azeez Mohammed, is confident after applying to the NFF for Nigeria’s U17s – the Golden Eaglets top job, Completesports.com reports.

After an illustrious playing career that spanned through Ranch Bees and Kaduna United and later Gombe United, Mohammed has so far made a success of his coaching career in the Sudanese Premier League.

“I arrived here (Sudan) in 2008 as a player and signed for Merreikh Port Sudan FC. Then in 2010, I played for Annasr Kareema FC. But unfortunately, I got injured and my playing career suffered an abrupt end”, Mohammed told Completesports.com Saturday morning from his base.

“After my injury finally healed, I went back to school and ventured into coaching by enrolling in the Sudanese equivalent of Nigeria Institute for Sports, NIS.

“I’ve my CAF B and C coaching badges as we speak. I took up Hilal Al-Fasher role from the lower league and we are now in the (Sudanese) Premier League for about three seasons now.”

Hilal Al-Fasher are presently 9th in the 2019/2020 Sudanese Premier League table after 17 round of matches. They also have two games in hand.


Mohammed is confident that he can man the job of Nigeria’s national U-17 team head coach very well if given the opportunity, and that it’s that self-belief that motivated him to turn in his application.

“Yes, I believe I can do a good job for Nigeria at the youth level,” he said.

“I’ve turned in my papers at the NFF expressing my desire and qualification for the U17 Golden Eaglets job.”

NFF recently threw all the age group national team coaching jobs vacant and asked interested coaches to apply.

“That was reason I applied, I’m a Nigerian and I believe I can serve my fatherland. That was reason I decided to show interest in the Golden Eaglets job,” Mohammed concluded.

    Coaching Nigeria national teams is not just about training the boys how to play and win matches but most importantly, being able to refuse been used as a stooge by those selfish lots trying to use our national teams platform to market players. For that reason, I honestly don’t see you as one to be able to do that.

    You may be right @ Greenturf, but just my gut feeling. Those men out there are bulldogs n will need lions to tear them apart.

      You are right about the system in Nigeria and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
      Any Nigerian appointed will likely fall victim to the corrupt system it’s a shame.
      However,yet you get a few people who are incorruptible.Principled and dedicated to good service,this kind of people aren’t many.Who knows the coach from Sudan could be one of this kind.
      We eagerly awaits the appointments of national football coaches hoping this time around we are able to get quality and less corrupt coaches to move our football forward.

    Emmanuel Amunike remains the best coach for the under 17s. We need him to discover more Osigoals and chukwe Ezes as well Nwakalis. He is very strict and unbiase at ayer selection
