Super Eagles to arrive to Rwanda on Saturday morning

The Super Eagles camp in Morocco is brimmed with all invited players now in camp ahead of their upcoming friendlies against Ghana and Mali.

A former Nigerian international, Friday Ekpo,  has advised the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to be proactive in choosing a coach for the Super Eagles  to ensure proper preparations for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Ekpo gave the advice in an interview with Newsmen on Tuesday in Lagos.

He said that  delaying the  appointment of the Eagles coach  would affect the team’s  performance ahead of the world cup qualifiers.

“We are used to  rushing, when the time comes we will start to prepare for the tournament.

“NFF shouldn’t be wasting time in choosing the national team coach, so that it won’t affect the player’s performance,” he said.

He  urged  the NFF to fast-track the process to allow for  enough preparations towards the world cup qualifiers.

According to him, the new coach if appointed will need more time to settle down, study the team, look inward for home based players and other players abroad.

“There is  no time to waste in searching for the  national team coach, infact we have enough indigenous coaches that can handle the team very well,” he added.

Nigeria will take on Bafana Bafana in Uyo and  Benin Republic away from home on   June 3–11, in Match days three  and 4 of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
