Former Nigerian goalkeeper and assistant coach of the Super Eagles, Joe Erico is dead.
The former goalkeeper’s death was confirmed on Thursday morning by the Super Eagles media officer, Babafemi Raji via Brila FM.
Erico fondly referred to as ‘Jogo Bonito’ was part of the Super Eagles technical crew alongside late coach Shuaibu Amodu and late Stephen Keshi qualified the national team for the 2002 Korea/Japan World Cup, but they were dismissed before the Mundial.
All gone to be with the Lord. First was Stephen Keshi, followed by Shaibu Amodu and just this morning, Joe Erico joined them. They had something in common, they coached the national team, the Super Eagles. RIP, loyal soldiers. pic.twitter.com/rWUbX40MQD
