Give Eguavoen Super Eagles job — Izilein

Augustine Eguavoen

Godwin Izilein, former coach of the Super Falcons, has said that Augustine Eguavoen should be given the chance of first refusal as the coach of the Super Eagles.

Izilein, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Benin on Tuesday, said Eguavoen deserved the job.

He said that his performance shocked, impacted and impressed everybody at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon.

The former chief handler of the senior female national team noted that Eguavoen was able to change the interest of the players and harnessed them into one entity.

Izilein stressed that the ex-Eagles player shocked his critics and was able to achieve the feat with the Super Eagles in Cameroon in spite of the time factor.

“This is the only way to pay him back. If he is willing to accept the job, give it to him; he will get the support of all the indigenous coaches.

“Giving him the position will motivate others that there is chance for the indigenous coaches.

“Eguavoen has reawakened the cradle of performance that the Eagles were known for; this was what placed us fifth in the world years ago,“ he said.

He said that what the team needed now was to be kept the players together for a longer period.

NAN reports that the Eagles lost 0-1 to Tunisia in the round of 16 in the ongoing AFCON tournament in Cameroon after a 100 per cent record in the group stage. (NAN)
