Former Nigeria forward, Finidi George has been confirmed as the interim coach of the super eagles for their international friendly games against Ghana and Mali  in Marrakech on Friday and next Tuesday respectively.

The 52-year-old winger who made a scoring debut for Nigeria at an AFCON qualifying match against Burkina Faso at the National Stadium, Lagos on 27th July 1991, has been appointed by the NFF to hold the reins in the meantime as the 22 players take on Ghana and Mali in this month’s international window.

As at the time of the report, 12 of the 22 players had arrived training camp in Marakech, with defenders Gabriel Osho and Tyronne Ebuehi, and forwards Victor Osimhen and Taiwo Awoniyi not been included in the squad due to different degrees of injury.
