AFCON

Peseiro To Extend Super Eagles’ Contract – Sources

Jose Peseiro, the head coach of the Super Eagles, is anticipated to sign a contract extension soon. DAILY POST gives dependable information. 

Following the Super Eagles' failure to earn a spot in Qatar for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Peseiro was named as the team's official head coach in May. 


The Nigeria Football Federation and the Portuguese coach signed a one-year agreement (NFF). 


The 2023 Africa Cup of Nations will now take place in January 2024 instead of June of this year, and the NFF and Peseiro will begin negotiations for an extension to last until after the AFCON finals in Cote d'Ivoire. 


Due to the unfavorable weather conditions in Cote d'Ivoire over the summer, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) decided to postpone the competition.


The Super Eagles defeated Sao Tome and Principe and Sierra Leone in their opening two matches of the qualifying tournament. 


With six points, the three-time African champions lead Group A of the qualifications. 

In September, Peseiro's team will play two games against the Guinea-Bissau Djurtus.
