Nigeria have announced that they have parted company with coach Samson Siasia.
The former Nigerian international coached the country's Under-20 and Under-23 sides before being appointed in 2010.
But after failing to qualify for the 2012 African Cup of Nations, he has been relieved of his duties.
In a statement, the Nigeria Football Federation said it would begin a search immediately for a replacement, with the hope of hiring one by Wednesday.
"Coach Samson Siasia and the technical crew has breached a key proviso in their contract with the (federation) and their services are therefore promptly dispensed with," the statement read.
