Super Eagles: Nigerians ask NFF to give Augustine Eguavoen another chance

After Nigeria’s Super Eagles’ disappointing performance in World Cup qualifiers against Lesotho and Zimbabwe, Nigerians called Augustine Eguavoen to replace Jose Peseiro.

Pulse Sports reported that the Eagles’ lackluster displays, particularly their inability to convert their dominance into victories, have frustrated fans and pundits and questioned the team’s direction under Peseiro’s leadership, calling for the sacking of head coach Jose Peseiro.

Super Eagles start 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers withdraws

Super Eagles failed to secure a win against Lesotho and Zimbabwe in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches.

Nigeria hosted Lesotho at the Godswill Akpabio stadium in Uyo, where the game ended in a 1-1 draw. A few days later, the three-time African champions failed to beat Zimbabwe.

Nigerians divide over Peseiro’s continuation as Super Eagles coach

Nigerians have been divided over the decision for Peseiro to continue as Super Eagles coach, with some calling for the sack of the coach while some want him to stay.

Some pointed to Peseiro’s tactical approach and failure to get the best out of his players as critical reasons for the team’s struggles. 

They argue that his methods are outdated and ineffective and that he has been unable to instill a winning mentality in the squad.

Peseiro’s defenders, on the other hand, maintain that he needs more time to implement his philosophy and that the team is still under construction. 

They argue that the two draws do not indicate Peseiro’s long-term capabilities and that he deserves a chance to prove himself.
