thumbnail Hello,

The two trainers Miguel Herrera and Stephen Keshi will pitch their technical abilities against each other in Wednesday night's friendly in Atlanta

Keshi on injury to Yobo and calling up Leon Balogun
"[Balogun] is not replacing Yobo at all. Yobo was still bent on coming for the game even if just to support the team but I told him to relax and recover quickly for the World Cup. We have to look to the future and that is why we called up Balogun, he has been in our plans for a long time and it was just time that he steps into the team for us to see what he can do and I must say I am glad that he responded well and the boys here also welcomed him well."

Keshi on the arrival of Imoh Ezekiel
"We also have an opportunity to see Imoh who is a part of the system now, for us to see what they can do to make the team better. We must look ahead.”

Keshi on playing against Scotland in May
"We are delighted to be playing the Scottish team in London as part of our pre-World Cup preparations and we know it would be a real test in front of a passionate crowd. We hope that many London-based Nigerians will come out en masse to give the Eagles a rousing send forth ahead of Brazil 2014."



Herrera on playing Nigeria
"It is very important to play Nigeria, it will help us a lot knowing that the Cameroonian style is very similar."

Herrera on the team's form after training
"They came across very well, the first day was to recover and today we did a pretty good test to see that everyone is in great spirits."

Herrera on injury to Giovani Dos Santos
"We will wait to get more information on the recovery of Giovani, but we'll keep watching."
