Nigeria’s Super Eagles coach Austin Eguavoen has been named the best coach at the group stage.

Nigeria recorded victories in all their group stage games at the on going African Cup of Nations tournament.

And he seems to be on the right track after leading Nigeria to a perfect group game record beating mighty Egypt 1-0, Sudan 3-1 and Guinea-Bissau 2-0 in their Group D games.

Augustine Eguavoen feat has been recognised by the CAF who announced that he is the Group Stage Best Manager Award.
