The Nigeria Football Federation, on Sunday, May 15 confirmed Jose Peseiro as the new head coach of the national team.

“The 12-month deal is subject to renewal based on performance-related clauses.
It is understood the NFF has given Peseiro a short-term contract, because of their legal battle on payments with former Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr.”

Peseiro’s first matches in charge will be the friendlies against Ecuador and Mexico in the US.
