We’ll build strongest national team – Super Eagles assistant coach, James

Super Eagles assistant coach Benjamin James is confident the new backroom staff can build one of the strongest national teams in the world.

The former Shooting Stars player was part of the new Super Eagles technical crew unveiled by the Nigeria Football Federation last week.

James will combine the role with his job at Bundesliga club, Hoffenheim.

The 53-year-old stated that he will combine with head coach Finidi George and Daniel Amokachi to build a solid team.

“I have gathered some experience to believe that if I Finidi and Amokachi sit down in the same room, we’ll come out with something good,” he told Brila FM.

“The pattern to be played will be discussed by the three of us. The players present in the squad currently are good, it’s just about putting them in the right place.

“Finidi is a cool headed person, I’m not so familiar with Amokachi, but I believe he’s also a cool headed person and I believe we can rub minds together and come up with the best.”

The new technical crew’s first official assignment will be the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against South Africa.
