The national team coach has promised that the Super Eagles will be well prepared for the second leg against Liberia
Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, says he is dismayed by reports that he had a fight with Vincent Enyeama over the goalkeeper’s performance against Liberia last Saturday in Monrovia.
Match reports stated that Enyeama was culpable for both Liberian goals but Keshi was quick to point out that the whole team had to take the blame for the 2-2 draw.
“Haba, there was nothing like that and if there is anybody to be blamed, it’s the team, not an individual,” Keshi said.
“We will score goals aplenty, but I understand the apprehension of Nigerians, and what I have always asked for is patience, I need lots of it to succeed”.
Keshi said he could not appropriate a bad result on an individual rather the team as a whole have to take the blame for any bad performance.
“I never at any moment said that Enyeama, who remains our first choice keeper caused us the draw in Liberia.
“In fact I think that he is one of the best in the world but at times like these passion rules over reason, but we must not bring individual players into our poor performance, it’s a collective failure to win.
Keshi also assured that he going to release his team list for the second leg against Liberia in Calabar early enough so that those players, who might not be ready for the October 13 duel, will let him know on time.
“The list of invited players will be made public early enough and we are assuring our fans that we will not only win but win well,” he concluded.
