Daniel Amokachi: NFF picks wrong coaches, players for Super Eagles

Daniel Amokachi, a former Nigerian forward, says that the Nigeria Football Federation hired the wrong coaches and picked the wrong players for the Super Eagles (NFF).

Daniel Amokachi, a former Nigerian forward, says that the Nigeria Football Federation hired the wrong coaches and picked the wrong players for the Super Eagles (NFF).

He said this after the team had a bad game against Portugal in a friendly international match, in which the Super Eagles lost 4-0.

In an interview with Channels TV on Sunday, the former Everton star said that it’s too soon to let the current Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro, go and that he should be given help wherever he needs it.

Amokachi also said that the coaches should look inward and pick people from the area to be on the team. He said that this has worked for the team in the past.

“The Portugal game shows that we don’t even deserve to be there (World Cup),” he said.

“There are two three different angles that you have to look at, bringing in the right coach, bringing in the right players, and getting the right environment to play at.

 “We always bring the wrong coaches to handle a country like Nigeria; we always bring the wrong players,” Amokachi said during a Channels Television show on Sunday.
