Following Nigeria's inability to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Augustine Eguavoen, the country's former Technical Adviser, has stood down with immediate effect, according to the Nigeria Football Federation.
The four-time African champions clinched a spot in the tournament in Qatar later this year by drawing 1-1 with their arch-rivals Nigeria on Tuesday in Abuja.
After a goalless draw in the first leg in Kumasi on Friday, the result ensures Ghana will qualify for the global championship based on the away goals rule.
"In the meantime, the NFF has withdrawn the two-and-a-half-year contract offered to the coaches and has terminated the team's whole technical crew's appointment with immediate effect." After a thorough examination, a new crew will be named to spearhead the effort of reinvigorating the Super Eagles in order to confront future difficulties effectively."
"We appreciate the coaches and team officials' contributions to the country and wish them well in their future endeavors." Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, the NFF's General Secretary, declared as much.
