Peseiro is Nigeria’s new picker, but he doesn’t start at CAN

Coach José Peseiro is the new Nigeria coach. The official announcement was made this Wednesday.

Despite this officialization, the Federation adds that it will not yet be the Portuguese coach to lead Nigeria in the African Nations Cup (CAN) which starts in January.

During the competition, Augustine Eguavoen will act as interim coach.

The 61-year-old Portuguese is the successor of Gernot Rohr, who was fired in December after five years in the job.

In March, Nigeria will compete in the “play-off” to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.

Peseiro’s last mission had been the Venezuela national team, but the Portuguese coach ended up leaving his post due to several late wages.
