Former England managers Sven-Goran Eriksson and Glenn Hoddle are on a five-man short list to be the new coach of Nigeria, a spokesman for the national federation has confirmed.

Hoddle managed England at the 1998 World Cup, where they reached the last 16 before being knocked out on penalties by Argentina, who are Nigeria's first opponents at the 2010 World Cup.

Eriksson led England at the 2002 and 2006 finals, and was most recently employed as director of football at Notts County.

Nigeria Football Federation spokesman Ademola Olajire said: "We have five candidates and Glenn Hoddle is one of them. He took his turn (for interview) yesterday (Wednesday) and we will make a decision tomorrow evening."

Olajire also confirmed Eriksson among the names of the four other candidates.
