Keshi’s future with Super Eagles uncertain

by Olorunwa Lawal

Super Eagles head coach, Stephen Keshi, is yet to decide on his future as the coach of the national team.

Keshi, whose contract expired after the FIFA World Cup in Brazil is yet to sign a renewal, but agreed to take charge of the Eagle’s first two matches in the African Nations Cup qualifying campaign.

“I’m not sure yet. I was just brought in to help manage these two games.

“We have finished them now, so we’ll see what happens. If we (he and the Nigerian federation) come to an agreement, yes I’ll stay. If no, I’ll depart. Let’s see how it turns out when I get home,” he said.

Keshi’s two games in charge left a lot to be questioned about his ability to lead the team to the glory days – surprise 3-2 home loss to Congo last Saturday, and a goalless draw with South Africa in Cape Town on Wednesday night.

The Super Eagles will next play Sudan twice (Home and Away) in a row in October in their bid to qualify for the 2015 African Cup of Nations in Morocco. Nigeria are placed third in Group A, behind Congo (six points) and South Africa (four points) after picking up only one point from their first two games.
