Twitter has verified the Twitter account of Super Eagles Interim Manager, Augustine Eguavoen.
The official handle of the team, @NGSuperEagles, celebrated the verification on Friday.
The verification came barely 48 hours after Eguavoen qualified Nigeria for the knockout stage of the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon with a 100 per cent win record.
Nigeria had eased into the Round of 16 as group leaders, with a match to spare, courtesy of the wins over Egypt and Sudan in their two matches and the combination of other results, notably Egypt’s defeat of Guinea Bissau on Saturday.
Despite that, the team defeated Guinea Bissau 2-0 to record 100 per cent victory in their group stage.
Eguavoen, 56, is the only man to have coached Nigeria to win all three matches in the group phase of the AFCON since the country started participating at this level since 1963.
