But with the latest development according to OwnGoal Nigeria who cited Wale Ajayi one of Nigeria’s foremost journalists, Finidi George is now Super Eagles’ head coach and first assistant.

This also means Finidi George will be in charge of Nigeria’s friendly games against Mexico and Ecuador even though it was Salisu Yusuf who invited the players.

The Enyimba manager is also expected to deputize whoever is appointed as Super Eagles’ foreign technical adviser.

While Salisu Yusuf remains the CHAN Eagles (Super Eagles B), and Nigeria U-23 (The Olympic Team) coach.

This is what the new Super Eagles technical crew looks like:
