AFCON 2021–Augustine Eguavoen,Super Eagles interim boss, has expressed happiness after winning the Group Stage Best Coach award at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Eguavoen was named Group Stage Best Coach at the ongoing African Football Confederation (AFCON) earlier on Saturday by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
In Group D, Eguavoen led Nigeria to three straight victories over Egypt, Sudan, and Guinea-Bissau.
In doing so, the 56-year-old, who won the AFCON as a player in 1994, matched his own record set as a coach in 2006.
Eguavoen only took over for Gernot Rohr on a temporary basis, just two weeks before the tournament began.
“Many thanks to the Confederation of African Football for this award,” Eguavoen tweeted ahead of Nigeria’s AFCON 2021 last-16 match against Tunisia on Sunday.
“The Group stage’s best coach.” It would not have been possible without the help of my incredible team of players and colleagues.
“Thank you for your support, Nigerians. It’s more important now than ever.”
