The 56-year-old former player has since proved his ability having led the national team to pick up all nine maximum points from the group stage of the competition.

Eguavoen has been praised by many of the footballers in the squad for bestowing upon them newly-fangled freedom and credited for adding a breath of fresh air to the team.

Meanwhile, Ghana Football Association has reportedly sacked Milovan Rajevac as the country’s national football team coach.

Anaedoonline.ng understands that Rajevac’s trouble started with the Ghanaian FA after Ghana exited the 2021 African Cup of Nation, AFCON, without a win.

Following the embarrassing record in the ongoing AFCON tournament in Cameroon, the country’s Sports Ministry in an emergency meeting on Friday, January 21, called for the Serbian tactician’s sacking.

According to African Sports Today, the FA were slow to decide on Rajevac but the country’s Sports Ministry was determined and have won the tussle on the future of the Serbian.

Rajevac in his first spell with the Black Stars led Ghana to the finals of the 2010 AFCON and the Quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup, Naija News recalls.

However, his second spell did not go well after leading Ghana to the exit door of the 2021 AFCON.
