The Flying Eagles and Golden Eaglets will also get new handlers after their last assignments in 2019.

“With regards to a Coach for the Super Falcons, Africa’s biggest female football team, Phillips Consulting, in charge of the recruitment process, are putting finishing touches to it and a Coach will be announced soon,” Pinnick stated.

“This also applies to Coaches for the different cadres of our National Teams.”
