The Guild of Sports Editors has advised Nigeria Football Federation, NFF to urgently empower Super Eagles Interim Coach, Augustine Eguavoen for the forthcoming Qatar 2022 World Cup playoff in March against the Black Stars of Ghana.

The Guild also noted that the time is too short for the federation to hire a Foreign Coach for the task of qualifying Nigeria for Qatar 2022, adding Eguavoen has shown that he can return the Eagles to the summit of world football.

The body, which is the umbrella association of managers of sports in the country’s major media houses, rising from a meeting in Lagos through its President Tony Ubani said Nigerians will not forgive the federation if it bungles the country’s bid to qualify for the World Cup.

It also reminded Sports Minister, Sunday Dare that qualifying and performing creditably at the 2022 World Cup is the biggest sports assignment facing the Federal Government this year.
