African World Cup Without African Coach by yousouph(m): 9:49am On Dec 05, 2009
We are excited that our generation will be witnessing The World Cup on African soil. The players that will play at the mundial are already savouring the prospect of making history for theirselves and countries but same cannot be assured of any indigenous coach leading his team to make history in South Africa. Nigeria is the only nation with local coach now but with no guarantee of participating at the World Cup with all the rumours of a foreign coach in the pipeline. Although his technical inabilities is a concern to millions of fanatic NIGERIANS but anyway you look at it, i belief its a shame if we cant see an African team with local coach in SA.

Amodu will pilot Nigeria, we have been through this path previously. My reasons are:
- Nigeria never lost a match during qualifying stages
- Vivdly, the first stage was 100% for the super eagles, beating every team home-&-away including the hosts.
- Even though the second stage started with pressure, we finally became successful on the last day. 66.7%
- A foreign coach except Westerhof cannot adapt within 6months.
- Let's not forget the last German that we hired - he was very non-chanlant to Nigerian football - even Chief Onigbinde defeated him in a friendly match.
- Westerhof is the only possible candiadte if I were to pick a foreign coach, he knows the Nigerian football in and out, and he has coached nigeria to glorious triumphs; however, we need to put faith in our locals as well.
- Amodu has qualified Nigeria for twoo world cups and he didnt take part in the the first one.; its right to give a chance now to prove his intelligence.

No team has ever won the worldcup without local coach, we have to do the same.

dude u are spot on. do know that amodu was the only black coach @ the world cup draws? being african i'm proud we are leading the way in entrusting one of our own with a huge assignment such as the world cup. yes amodu is tactically deficent but like some one wrote sia1 can be drafted to the coaching team

I doubt NFF will do that except a disaster at the NATIONS CUP

Finally, i think it just a product of some people mischief, that made them to think that Amodu should not reap where he had already sown. Lets trust our own local coaches and the sky will be the limit
