The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) on Thursday confirmed that a permanent head coach for the Super Eagles would be in place for the final round of qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The Eagles have been without a substantive coach since Sunday Oliseh resigned in February with the likes of Samson Siasia and Salisu Yusuf managing the team on temporary basis at different points.
According to the NFF Technical Committee, a technical crew led by either a local or foreign coach would be appointed after the upcoming friendlies against Mali and Luxembourg in June.
Meanwhile, Salisu Yusuf is the man to lead the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the upcoming friendlies against Mali and Luxembourg.
The former Kano Pillars boss will be assisted by Enugu Rangers Coach, Imama Amapakabor, Kennedy Boboye of Abia Warriors while Alloy Agu would serve as goalkeeper trainer.
Nigeria plays Mali on May 27, before going on to face Luxembourg on June 1.
Both matches will serve as tune ups for the final round of qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
