    The Somalia Football Federation (SFF) has confirmed the appointment of Ghana's Bashir Hayford as the new national team coach.

    Hayford, who was in charge of hosts Ghana at the Women's Africa Cup of Nations last years, has signed a two-year contract replacing Somalia's Mohamed Abdulla Farayare.

    "We needed someone with a lot of experience to identify players and also help the other junior teams," SFF president Abdiqani Said Arab told BBC Sport.

    "He is going to start identifying players ahead of the 2020 Total Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier where we play Rwanda in the first round."

    The SFF will also appoint local coaches to work with Hayford for them to learn from his expertise.

    Arab made it clear that now that the Somalia Premier League is more competitive, they hope to pick good players who can help the team perform well in international tournaments.

    "I'll think about what the near future has in store for me," he said.

    "I will make sure to keep in mind today's nice moments and if this is the end of all then so be it.

    "l started playing for the national team in 2000 and we are now in 2019. There have been some ups and downs - there were some regrets as well as some unforgettable moments."

    Nigeria beat Egypt 1-0 in a friendly thanks to a goal scored inside 10 seconds in Asaba on Tuesday.

    Paul Onuachu's strike is Nigeria's fastest ever international goal.

    According to Uefa the fastest ever competitive international goal was scored by Belgium's Christian Benteke just after 8.1 seconds against Gibraltar in October 2016.

    Elsewhere, Senegal needed Sadio Mane to come off the bench and help them to a win over Mali.

    Also on Tuesday Algeria beat Tunisia, Ivory Coast beat Liberia, Ghana won at home to Mauritania and Morocco were beaten by Argentina.

    With the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt fast approaching, it was an important round of matches for coaches and players.

    Nigeria's Denmark-based Onuachu, who was making his full international debut, seized his opportunity to make an impact.

    The ball was chipped forward for him to run on to, he took it round the defender with one touch and then scored with his second to stun Egypt and delight the still settling crowd...  more

    Nigeria international defender Kenneth Omeruo would like to make a permanent move to Spanish side Leganes when his current loan ends.

    Omeruo, who joined the La Liga side in August for a seventh loan move away from Chelsea since he joined them in 2012, is due to return in July.

    The 25-year-old has made 24 appearances since moving to the Spanish side.

    "The football here suits my style and the club provides a stable platform for me," he told BBC Sport.

    "The opportunity to play against the best players in the world is massive for my career.

    "There is an option for Leganes to sign me on a permanent basis and hopefully that will happen."

    Omeruo, who is yet to play a competitive game for Chelsea where he has a deal until 2020, spent a second spell at Turkish side Kasımpasa last season.

    A 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner with Nigeria, he has also been loaned to Dutch side ADO Den Haag, Middlesbrough in England for two seasons and another Turkish side Alanyaspor.
