Could Coach Jose Peseiro Be Replaced?

Coach Jose Pseiro Could Be Replaced | Fab.ng

The Super Eagles of Nigeria ended Sunday night’s African Cup of Nations title match in Abidjan with a loss. This defeat also meant the end of their head coach, Jose Peseiro’s reign, leaving the team without leadership at the top. The football team lost their head coach after the final whistle of the 34th Africa Cup of Nations in Abidjan.

Jose Peseiro’s temporary job as coach for Nigeria’s soccer team is over now. His contract was only running until the end of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament, which just wrapped up. This temporary contract was needed because his original contract finished back in June of last year. While the contract had ended, they needed him to stay for the tournament.

Jose Peseiro earned himself a contract extension after leading the Super Eagles to the AFCON semi-finals, fulfilling a key condition of his temporary deal. However, his next task, qualifying for the 2025 edition, faces an unusual hurdle as the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has surprisingly delayed announcing the schedule for the qualifying matches.

This is the first time in recent history that CAF has held back the fixture announcement until after the previous AFCON concluded. This unexpected delay leaves both Peseiro and the Nigerian team without a clear roadmap for their upcoming qualifying campaign, adding a layer of uncertainty to their preparations.

The Super Eagles have a busy year ahead with qualification matches for both the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • The AFCON qualifiers kick off soon. The preliminary round is happening from March 18th to 26th, 2024.
  • Group stage games follow later in the year, with matches spread across three periods:
    • September 2nd to 10th, 2024
    • October 7th to 15th, 2024
    • November 11th to 19th, 2024
  • World Cup: The Super Eagles are also vying for a spot in the 2026 tournament. They have two crucial qualifiers scheduled for June 2024:
    • The home game against South Africa on June 2nd
    • Away game against Benin Republic on June 9th

They’ll be battling it out on the pitch to secure their place in both the AFCON and the World Cup.

Skepta Features Portable In New Afrobeats Hit “Tony Montana”

Skepta Features Portable In "Tony Montana" | Fab.ng

British-Nigerian rapper Skepta is teaming up with rising Nigerian star Portable for a new Afrobeats song titled “Tony Montana.” This collaboration marks Skepta’s exploration of the Afrobeats genre, potentially connecting with his Nigerian roots.

The song, produced by award-winning JAE5, follows Portable’s “Tony Montana of London” EP, released earlier in 2024. Notably, Portable’s visit to the UK in the same year led to this collaboration with Skepta.

Fans on social media are excited about the single, particularly impressed by Portable’s contribution. His melodic chorus is a departure from his usual “hoarse street music” style.

“Tony Montana” is not Skepta’s first foray into exploring collaborations with Nigerian artists. Earlier this year, he released “Jangrova,” featuring Nigerian rapper Odumodublvck and British-Ghanaian actor Idris Elba.

Interestingly, Skepta recently made his directorial debut with the movie “Tribal Mark,” focusing on a British-Nigerian hitman. He reportedly decided to create this film as a response to discussions about casting a black actor for the role of James Bond.

“Tony Montana” serves as one of the lead singles for Skepta’s upcoming sixth album, “Knife & Fork,” expected to be released later in 2024. This collaboration and album anticipation mark a promising year for the British-Nigerian artist.
