Foreign coach: NFF technical committee meets

THE technical committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will meet today in Abuja to put together a tight case on why the country need to hire a foreign coach for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Sports minister Solomon Dalung has demanded for a technical report from the NFF in support of a foreign coach for the Super Eagles after the country failed to qualify for a second straight AFCON.

The deadline for the submission of this report is next week.

The minister has said he will approve the engagement of a foreign coach should the NFF convince him, but at the same time warned the government will not pay for such a coach.

The draw for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers will be staged on June 24 with the series beginning in October.

Five teams will represent Africa at Russia 2018.
