Super Eagles: NFF fully behind Finidi – Ikpeba


Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) technical committee member, Victor Ikpeba, has said embattled Super Eagles head coach, Finidi George, has the full support of the soccer house.

Finidi has endured a poor start to his reign following the Super Eagles insipid performance in their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic.

The West Africans held Bafana Bafana to a 1-1 draw and lost 2-1 away to the Cheetahs.

They now languish in fifth position on the Group C table with three points from four games.

That has led to mounting calls for Finidi to be sacked.

“Nigerians asked for a local coach and Finidi was found to be the best man to lead the Super Eagles at this time,” Ikpeba was quoted by SCORENigeria.

“The technical committee chose the best in the interest of the country.

“Finidi will therefore continue to enjoy the full support of the NFF despite the recent results posted by the Super Eagles.”
