Nigeria’s former interim head coach, Augustine Eguavoen, has revealed he wants to coach the national team again despite his failure to secure Nigeria’s ticket for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Recall that Eguavoen sent his resignation letter after failing to qualify the Super Eagles for the 2022 World Cup.
The Eagles failed to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup after losing to the Black Stars of Ghana by an away goal in March.
Nigeria and Ghana played a 0-0 draw in the first leg in Kumasi, Ghana, and played a 1-1 in the second leg playoff at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja.
Speaking during SuperSports’ program, Monday Night Football, Eguavoen said he would take the opportunity to coach the Super Eagles again if he is called upon in the near future.
“If there is still an opportunity for me, I will want to coach the Eagles again, but not at this moment, maybe later,” Eguavoen said.
“If I am called upon to lead the team again, I will definitely take up the job. I am still one of the good coaches in the country. I can still prove a point, it is just a matter of time.
“No regrets taking up the job. When you are called to serve the nation, I could not refuse them,” he added.
