Finidi George Sets Sights on 2026 World Cup Qualification



Newly appointed Super Eagles coach, Finidi George, has set his sights on securing qualification for the 2026 World Cup as his top priority, reports.

With the team’s qualifying campaign faltering, Finidi is demanding unwavering commitment from his top players. He made this clear during his unveiling in Abuja on Monday, where he outlined his immediate priorities – two crucial 2026 World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin next month.

Finidi emphasized that representing Nigeria comes first, and players must be committed to the team and regularly playing for their clubs. He stressed the importance of a strong start, particularly in the upcoming clash against South Africa. A win in this match would set the tone for the team’s qualifying campaign.

Currently, Nigeria sits in third place in their qualifying group with just two points from two games, while South Africa is in second place with three points. Finidi’s leadership and strategic guidance will be crucial in getting the team back on track and securing a spot in the 2026 World Cup.
