Former Ajax winger Finidi George has resigned as coach of the Super Eagles, following the Nigeria Football Federation’s decision to appoint a foreign coach to oversee him.

According to Toyin Ibitoye, ex-Super Eagles media officer, George stepped down from his position as manager of the national team.

George’s resignation follows a disappointing performance by the team in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin. The NFF’s decision to appoint a foreign coach led to George’s demotion, with his contract being downgraded and his salary reduced from N15m to N5m.

In a meeting with Sports Minister John Enoh, George expressed his frustration with the lack of support from the NFF and questioned the commitment of Nigeria’s top players. “I can’t continue in this position with the NFF’s interference,” George said.

Spain's Young Talents and Veteran Experience Blend for Euro 2024 Final Showdown

As Spain prepares to face England in the Euro 2024 final on Sunday, coach Luis de la Fuente is rallying his team to make history.

The Spanish national team, known as La Roja, is aiming for a record fourth European Championship title, their last victory coming 12 years ago.

De la Fuente praised the current generation of players, highlighting their potential to create a lasting legacy. “It’s a brilliant generation, many of them have come through successful youth levels and that usually bodes well for success,” he told reporters on Saturday. “We want to start to make history – and we have made history already in the run to (the final)… I trust in a great future, there’s both present and future.”

While Spain’s previous successes were built around stars from Barcelona and Real Madrid, the current squad boasts a more balanced mix of talent. The team’s unity has been a recurring theme throughout the tournament.

Despite Spain’s impressive run to the final, De la Fuente expects a closely contested match against England. He emphasized the importance of concentration and capitalizing on opportunities, stating, “We need to have maximum concentration, not make any mistakes and take advantage of the chances we have – put them away.”

The coach also addressed the blend of youth and experience in his squad. Speaking about young talents Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams, De la Fuente said, “It’s not at all hard, they have such joy, and incredible maturity for such young players, they understand the sport very well and they are well accompanied by more experienced players.”

On the other end of the spectrum, 38-year-old defender Jesus Navas brings a wealth of experience to the team. Navas, who has won multiple international trophies with Spain, expressed his joy at still representing his country: “To still be enjoying myself with my national team at 38 is incredible.”

As Spain looks to add another chapter to its footballing history, the combination of youthful exuberance and seasoned experience could prove crucial in their pursuit of European glory against England in Berlin.
