Keshi waits On Emenike, Moses for good news

The Super Eagles have not given up on featuring their star forwards in the Afcon final encounter against the Stallions on Sunday

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi says he has not given up on the duo of Emmanuel Emenike and Victor Moses featuring in Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations final against Burkina Faso, after consulting with his medical team.

Speaking ahead of the team’s last training session at the National Stadium in Soweto, Keshi was quoted by the team’s Media Officer, Ben Alaiya, as saying, “I will wait till the last minute and by Sunday we will know whether the boys will play or not, any other opinion is unacceptable.”

He however assured Nigerians not to panic over the two players as the medics are working round the clock to ensure that they are fit for the final, even as he said that in the case of the unexpected he has capable replacements to fit into the shoes of the duo.

“I can understand the apprehension of the public over the two players but we must be a little patient, because I know that the two of them want to play in the final and the medical team is working round the clock,” he said.
