The Nigeria Football Federation will stage an unveiling ceremony on Monday morning in Abuja to formally present Mr. Finidi George as the new substantive Head Coach of the Senior Men's National Team, the Super Eagles.

The Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Owan Enoh, alongside the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Mrs. Tinuke Watti, the President of the NFF, Alhaji Ibrahim Musa Gusau, and the NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, are among the prominent personalities expected at the unveiling.

George, who passed up an opportunity to coach a second-tier team in Spain to return to Nigeria and lead two-time CAF Champions League winners Enyimba FC, won the tough Nigeria elite division title with the People's Elephant in his second season and has left the club with a chance of retaining the title this season, with six matches to go.

When George formally bowed out of the Aba giants days ago, Enyimba FC remained in third place on the NPFL log, with 53 points from 32 matches, four adrift of table-toppers Enugu Rangers and three off second-placed Remo Stars.

The 52-year-old spent 20 months as an assistant to Portuguese José Peseiro from the summer of 2022, during which the Super Eagles qualified for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations and came within 28 minutes of a fourth African title in Cote d'Ivoire three months ago.

George, who as a player won 62 caps for Nigeria at the senior level, during which he won the Africa Cup of Nations gold, silver, and bronze, and played in two FIFA World Cup finals, has the immediate task of picking maximum points from 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against South Africa (home) and Benin Republic (away) in a few weeks.
