The ex-Nigerian star made history in Togolese football when he qualified the Togo national team to the World cup for the first time in Germany 2006 after which he was promptly replaced by German Otto Pfister prior to the World Cup finals. The astute tactician however guided the Nigerian national team to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, having won the Cup of nations with the side the previous year in South Africa.
