The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have revealed the list of coaches for various national teams.

The Nigerian football body released a list of all the handlers of the national football teams except for the Super Eagles, U20 Women (Falconets) and U17 Women (Flamingos) because the current coaches have running contracts.

Alhaji Yusuf Ahmed ‘Fresh who is the Chairman of the Technical and Development Committee, told the nff's website that the appointments are with immediate effect, and that his committee has done due diligence on all the names and approved the constitution.

Alhaji Yusuf who is also vice chairman of the NFF Strategy Committee, said: “All the coaches will be unveiled at a later date, alongside the coaching crews of the U20 and U17 girls that were appointed earlier as a result of their World Cup qualifying campaigns.”
