Emmanuel Amunike has joined a very small, exclusive group of Nigerian Coaches, who help qualify other African national teams to the Continent’s biggest football fiesta; the Africa Cup of Nations.

Amunike guided the Taifa Stars to second place in Group L, following a 3-0 bashing of already qualified Uganda to reach this Summer’s AFCON, after a 37-year wait.


The former African footballer of the Year’s feat comes 9 years after Stephen Keshi qualified and led Mali to the 2010 AFCON in Angola.


Meanwhile, Keshi remains the only Nigerian Coach to lead two different African teams to the AFCON, having done it prior with Togo in 2006.
