Former coach Shaibu Amodu will now take charge of the remaining qualifying matches for the 2015 African Cup of Nations. 

The executive committee of the NFF, at a meeting held at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja on Wednesday night, relieved the coach and his assistant of their duties with immediate effect. 

Nigeria defeated Sudan 3-1 in Abuja a few hours earlier but still lies fourth in Group A and is in real danger of not making it to the finals to defend the trophy Keshi led them to win in South Africa in 2013.
