thumbnail Hello,

The trainer has said that the victory more than makes up for the sometimes uninspiring performance of the squad

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has told Goal.com that he will choose a win any day over how beautiful the team play.

The Super Eagles defeated Rwanda 2-0 in Calabar on Saturday to move to the next stage of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers despite a disjointed performance by the team.

However, he said they got into the match to qualify for the next stage, and that for today, is more important than how well or how badly the team played.

"We won. We qualified. That's what we set out to do today and we did just that," Keshi said.

"Yes the performance of the team was not sparkling especially in the second half but we can look into that later.

"The boys did well and we are going to enjoy the win and celebrate the victory then we can start working on our mistakes," a visibly happy Keshi said.

The Eagles will now play in the next and final stage of qualifiers that will commence in September.
