Nigeria head coach Augustine Eguavoen has stepped down from the role after failing to lead the Super Eagles to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Despite boasting several superstars, Nigeria failed to get past Ghana in the playoff, unluckily falling via away goals rule after a 1-1 aggregate over two legs.
Eguavoen was appointed as interim Super Eagles manager in December 2021, replacing Gernot Rohr who was sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation.
The 56-year-old led the Super Eagles to a disappointing Africa Cup of Nations in January where Nigeria got eliminated in the Round of 16 by Tunisia.
However, unconfirmed reports have put it that Eguavoen is expected to return to his Technical Director position with the NFF.
He joins three other coaches who resigned in the aftermath of the failure to lead their respective sides to Qatar.
Egypt’s Carlos Queiroz, Algeria’s Djamel Belmadi, and Democratic Republic of Congo’s Hector Cuper all left their roles after falling to Senegal, Cameroon, and Morocco respectively.
