With just few days to the second leg of the last round of qualifiers for next year’s African cup of Nations in South Africa, a FIFA licenced players agent, Kester Ezuma, has tipped Nigeria’s head coach, Stephen Keshi to lead the Super Eagles safely to another glorious campaign.
In an exclusive chat with Goal.com, the Switzerland based, Infinite International Sports Academy chief executive stated that Coach Keshi is on the right track to qualification with the right blend of home based stars and foreign based stars in his re-building process for the senior national team.
“I strongly believe that Coach Keshi is doing the right thing for our football," said the former Coal City babes FC and ITF FC of Jos player to Goal.com.
“Within a space of time he has been able to turn things around in the Super Eagles where we can now boast of players from our domestic league jostling for positions with their foreign counterpart in the Eagles.
“This is a worthy venture and he needs to be encouraged. Who would have heard of the likes of Chigozie Agbim, Godfrey Oboabona, Ejike Uzoenyi, Reuben Gabriel and Sunday Mba in the world map of football if not for this opportunity created by Keshi,” asked Ezuma.
“Like you know, there is always pressure to work in that position but Coach Keshi is handling this very well and he will surely lead our Super Eagles to conquer other teams at the Nations Cup next year.
“It is not as if I am underrating our opponent in the last game of the qualifiers, Liberia, because in football, anything is very possible but with the calibre of players called up by Keshi for this game, I don’t see us not picking the ticket to South Africa 2013,” he added.
He also revealed that the Super Eagles will do well at the Nations Cup in South Africa. “I am sure they will give their best in South Africa,” Ezuma concluded. The Super Eagles face the Lone Star of Liberia on October 14 in Calabar.
