There are indications that Mr. Augustine Eguavoen has resigned as the interim coach of the Nigeria national team.

This follows the Super Eagles’ 1-0 defeat to Tunisia in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations round of 16 clash on Sunday.

Eguavoen had led the three-time champions to three straight wins against Egypt, Sudan and Guinea-Bissau, but however fell short against a Covid-stricken Tunisian team in the knockout stages.

Eguavoen said after the match, “What happens next is that I’m the interim coach and Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), “I will go back to my position and allow the NFF (to) make a decision on the way forward,”

Eguavoen stepped in after Gernot Rohr was sacked last month with the NFF announced Jose Peseiro as the new permanent coach before the AFCON kicked off.
