Ex-international, Patrick Pascal, has urged newly appointed Super Eagles Chief Coach, Emmanuel Amuneke, to come with his wealth of experience to qualify Nigeria for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The Super Eagles coordinator said Amuneke’s appointment will bring good fortunes to the team as one of the coaches who brought up the majority of the players presently playing for the national team.
“Amuneke’s appointment is a good omen to the team because some of the players played under him at the under-aged competition. He is not new to any of the players even when we were in Cameroon, he always comes around to see the team,” Pascal stressed.

Amuneke was on an official assignment with CAF technical study group at the just-concluded Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon and he was delighted to see Nigeria performing creditably well in the group stage where they won all their matches to top the group.
Pascal said they were also banking on Amuneke’s wealth of experience as a former coach of the Tanzania national team and former FC Barcelona and former Super Eagles player.
Like Austin Eguavoen, who still maintains his Technical Director’s job, Amuneke was among the generation of Nigerian players who qualified Nigeria to her first FIFA World Cup in USA 1994.
“Amuneke should come with his experience to qualify Super Eagles for the World Cup. I know he is technically sound and the players would be excited to work with him again”, Pascal said.
