NGA 1-1 GHA: 2 Reasons Why Augustine Eguavoen Should Be Sacked By NFF

After another disappointing 1-1 draw against The Black Stars, Nigeria is officially out of the 2022 World Cup. Because of the away goal rule, Ghana qualified for the 2022 World Cup.

Well, the talking points of the game were Lookman’s penalty incident, Bassey’s disappointing performance, Uzoho’s costly mistake, and the injury to Frank Onyeka, but this article will center on why Augustine Eguavoen Should Be Sacked by NFF. Take a look!

1. He Is Not A Tactical Coach.

Eguavoen showed that he’s not a tactical coach today. The coach failed to realize that Bassey was the weakest link in the attack until it was too late. Nigeria’s coach was very predictable with his sub, and this affected us. Note that players like Sanusi and Kelechi were not introduced into the game when they were needed. Hence, he should be sacked for this.

2. He Keeps Repeating The Same Mistakes.


The midfielder’s over-reliance on the wing has now cost Nigeria the World Cup ticket. Just like at AFCON 2021, Augustine Eguavoen relies on his wing for creativity, and this makes him predictable. Note that after Lookman was replaced by Simon, the left-wing became dormant. Also, Eguavoen failed to introduce creative players like Iheanacho and Amoo. Note that this affected Nigeria.

Lastly, note that Augustine Eguavoen’s inability to make it to the World Cup with the kind of squad is also enough reason to be sacked.
