Nigeria name Amodu new national team coach

ABUJA, April 10 (Reuters) - Nigeria named Shaibu Amodu on Thursday as head coach of the national team two months after German manager Bertis Vogts left following a poor African Nations Cup performance in Ghana.

Amodu, who is returning to the job after two previous stints in 1996 and 2000, has a mandate to qualify Nigeria for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the African Cup of Nations in Angola, the FA said.

Amodu will be assisted by former internationals Daniel Amokachi, an assistant coach at domestic league champions Enyimba, Alloy Agu, Enyimba's goalkeeping trainer and Fatai Amoo manager of premier league side Sunshine Stars.

'They must qualify the Super Eagles for the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup and must excel in both championships,' Nigeria FA chairman Abdullahi Sani Lulu said.

Amodu's last time in charge was in 2002 when he qualified the Super Eagles for the World Cup finals.

He was fired less than four months before the start of soccer's biggest tournament after Nigeria, a twice African Nations Cup winner and favourite to win the continent's top prize in Mali, finished a disappointing third.

Amodu's first game will be in June when Nigeria play South Africa in a World Cup qualifier.
