The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) announced on Sunday that Super Eagles head coach Jose Peseiro has agreed to a contract extension.
Peseiro’s previous contract with the NFF expired in June.
The Portuguese has now agreed to continue in the role after accepting a pay cut on his earlier terms.
The 62-year-old, according to the new terms, will also handle the home-based Super Eagles.
The gaffer has been handed the mandate to lead the Super Eagles to the semi-finals of the 34th Africa Cup of Nations finals, taking place in Cote d’Ivoire in a few months.
The Super Eagles have already secured a place in the 2023 AFCON finals.
The three-time African champions will take on Sao Tome and Principe in their final qualifying fixture next Sunday.
