Stephen Keshi (Super Eagles coach), will be hoping that his boys replicate their match against Namibia but with more goals. He will also keep fate with his blend of Home based and foreign based players
Keshi agreed that the team should have scored a basketful of goals against Namibia, last Sunday in Calabar. He stated that the anxiety on the part of players, pressure from the fans and the desperation to correct the mistakes of the past were the reasons it ended in a one goal game.
