Posted: 20 February 2010 Time: 7:15 pm
Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson will be the most high profile attendee of Nigeria's coaching interviews set for next week in the country's capital Abuja.
The Swede, whose last international job was with Mexico, was not on the original shortlist announced by Nigeria, but sent in his application to be considered for the job and is now expected to be one of those to interview for the post.
Sources at the NFF informed KickOffNigeria.com that Eriksson's camp have requested for advice on suitable accommodations in Nigeria and will be expected in the country on February 25.
Sources close to the former Lazio coach say he is 'very keen' on taking on the Nigeria position.
Others expected to be in Abuja are former Senegal coach Bruno Metsu, ex Ghana coach Ratomir Djukovic and Lars Lagerback, who resigned from his Sweden position after failing to qualify for the 2010 World Cup.
