After the five-month doldrums that followed his first announcement as Super Eagles’ head coach, the Nigeria Football Federation on Sunday confirmed the appointment of  José Santos Peseiro as the new Head Coach of the Senior Men National Team, Super Eagles.

Unlike the previous announcement of 29 December 2021, where the appointment was left hanging till after the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon and later overturned, Sports Village Square understands from the current press release that the new appointment granted is with immediate effect, subject to the signing of agreed terms between the NFF and Mr Peseiro.

He thus becomes the first Portuguese to guide the Nigerian national team. He is also the 26th foreign coach to handle Nigeria since the ad-hoc arraignment the then Nigeria Football Association had with John Finch in 1949 during the famed UK Tourists.

José Vitor dos Santos Peseiro, 62 last month, is a Portuguese who played as a striker in his days and has wide and varied experience coaching top Clubs and National Teams across four different continents, namely Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. An educationist with a degree in physical education/sports sciences, Peseiro has top-level coaching qualifications/training, and has coached at Sporting Lisbon, FC Porto, Panathinaikos, Rapid Bucharest, Sporting Braga, Victoria Gumaraes, Al-Hilal, Al-Wahda, Al-Ahly Cairo, Sharjah FC and Real Madrid (assistant coach during the Galacticos era), as well as serving as Head Coach of the Saudi Arabian and Venezuelan National Teams.

Peseiro is expected to lead out the Super Eagles for the first time during the upcoming tour of the United States of America, during which the three –time African champions will slug it out with Mexico and Ecuador ‘A’ Teams in prestige friendlies. The Eagles will tango with the El Tri at the AT & T Stadium in Dallas, State of Texas on Saturday, 28th May before flying to New Jersey to confront Ecuador at the Red Bull Arena in Harrison on Thursday, 2nd June.

The NFF also announced that former Nigeria international forward, Finidi George will now be 1st Assistant to Peseiro, with Salisu Yusuf now to be 2nd Assistant as well as Head Coach of the CHAN and U23 National Teams. Usman Abdallah is 3rd Assistant while Eboboritse Uwejamomere will be the Match Analyst and another former Nigeria international, Ike Shorounmu will be the Goalkeepers’ Trainer.

  1. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of
    websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.

    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?

    Any help would be really appreciated!

    is kinda boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch
    how they create article headlines to get people to click.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited
    about what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.

  4. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
