The Nigeria coach says more players will soon be unveiled while his assistant says that the team is filled with 'sexy players' that will win a trophy for the country soon
Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi says he has made several new players’ discovery for the national team, but will rather keep it close to his chest and wait till the appointed time to call upon those who have impressed him in the task of rebuilding the squad.
Expected back in the country next week to prepare the national team for the friendly against Peru in Lima, Keshi declared that henceforth, he is choosing to talk less and act more so that his job will speak for him.
"Yes, we may have made some discoveries but we have to keep it quiet and learn to talk less about ourselves and more about the team. At the appropriate time the players that we know can help the cause of the national team will be unveiled,” Keshi said.
Meanwhile Keshi’s assistant, Daniel Amokachi says the national team as presently constituted has a couple of ‘sexy players’ that are bound to get a trophy for the country in the nearest future.
Speaking at the MTN Football Hub on Saturday at the Oriental Hotel in Lekki, Lagos, Amokachi, said the players have shown so much commitment and determination that those that have been used in the past who failed to get result should be immediately discarded whether they are local or foreign based.
"I have been privileged to work with three or four coaches in the past, who keep recycling the same set of players that never brought results but my boss Keshi is starting on a clean slate with players who are hungry for success and sooner than later Nigerians will appreciate what we are doing with the new Super Eagles," Amokachi said.
