The Nigeria Football Federation, has relieved Stephen Keshi of his duties as coach of the Super Eagles and replaced him with another former handler, Shuaibu Amodu.
Amodu will lead a consortium of coaches for Nigeria’s final two 2015 Africa Cup of Nationa qualifiers against Congo and South Africa.
According to reports, a foreign manager will then be appointed to lead the team.
The decision to let Keshi go was taken after the NFF Executive Committee met on Wednesday night, after the Eagles battled to a 3-1 win over Sudan in Abuja. According to a source, the meeting was held ‘in the interest of Nigerian football and the desire to ensure qualification for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations finals’.
