The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced the names of coaches for all of the country’s national football teams.
President of the Nigeria Football Coaches Association, Ladan Bosso was named as handler of the Nigeria U20 team.
The veteran tactician returns to the team 13 years after leading the Flying Eagles to a failed expedition at the 2007 U20 FIFA World Cup Canada – where his team bowed out of the championship after suffering a 4-0 obliteration to Canada in the quarter-final.
The former FC Ifeanyi Ubah coach will be assisted by Jolomi Atune Alli and Oladuni Oyekale with Shuaibu Akanmu as goalkeeper coach.
They are expected to qualify the country for the 2022 Africa U20 Cup of Nations billed for Mauritania. That competition serves as qualifier for the global football showpiece to be staged in Indonesia.
Ex-Nigeria U23 assistant coach Fatai Amoo will handle the U17 boys (Golden Eaglets) alongside Ahmed Dankoli, Nnamdi Onuigbo and Danlami Kwasau.
Coach Haruna Ilerika will be in charge of the U15 boys, while Abdullahi Umar has been saddled with the responsibility of grooming the U13 team.
For Nigeria U20 women’s team, coach Christopher Danjuma returns to the helm of affairs. He led the Falconets to the 2018 U20 Women’s World Cup France – where the country bowed 2-1 to Spain in the quarter-finals.
