The Nigeria football federation (NFF), set to consider a foreign Technical adviser for the national team.

This resolution was due to the underperformance of the Super Eagles in the ongoing 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

This was revealed in a communique made available to the media on Thursday by the football federation.

“The Executive Committee wholeheartedly apologized to Nigerians for the dismal output and subsequent very poor returns of the Senior Men National Team, Super Eagles, in four out of 10 matches in the ongoing qualification series for the 2026 FIFA World Cup finals, and pledged to work assiduously and put necessary measures in place to ensure a better-prepared squad ahead of the AFCON 2025 qualifiers in September this year and the resumption of the World Cup qualifiers in March 2025.

“Notwithstanding the challenges that attended the team’s preparations for the Day 3 and Day 4 games of the FIFA World Cup qualifying matches, owing to a 38-hour nationwide industrial action, the Board expressed displeasure with the poor attitude of some of the players to the National Assignment, and unanimously decided in favour of a more robust scouting programme of outstanding Nigeria-eligible players from across the four corners of the universe, who can add tremendous value to the nation’s flagship team.”

The NFF also resolved to beef up the NFF Technical Department with more qualitative hands.

NFF also assured that the Technical and Development Sub-Committee will be re-jigged with immediate effect.
