Recall that the NFF in a statement by its General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, had announced that Amuneke will take over from Eguavoen as the new head coach of the national team.

Sanusi said the development was part of moves to reconstitute the technical committee of the national team.

He said Amuneke was appointed in view of the positive performance of the Super Eagles at the just-concluded Africa Cup of Nations which has given hope to Nigerians and boosted the confidence in the present coaching crew to qualify Nigeria for the World Cup in Qatar.

The NFF scribe disclosed that Salisu Yusuf will be the 2nd Assistant Coach/Chief Coach of the CHAN team and Joseph Yobo will be 3rd Assistant while Aloysius Agu remains the Goalkeepers’ Trainer.
