2. Emmanuel Amuneke’s Popular Support

Former Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke is another significant candidate, garnering considerable support from Nigerian fans. 

His experience with Tanzanian football and his familiarity with Nigerian football culture make him a favored choice for many supporters who believe he could bring a refreshing change to the team’s strategy and performance​​.

3. Additional Candidates

While the NFF has not publicly disclosed the full list of candidates, reports suggest that a mix of local and international coaches, including a Nigerian coach working abroad and a coach currently leading another African national team, are being considered. 

These coaches have reportedly been contacted by the NFF as potential replacements, indicating a thorough search for the right candidate to lead the Super Eagles forward​​.

The selection process appears to be in a critical phase, with the NFF exploring various options to ensure the Super Eagles are guided by a competent and visionary coach in their upcoming challenges.
