Eagles say Keshi will sweat to pick final squad

posted in: News | 0

After the Super Eagles pulsating 2-2 draw against
the Tartan Army of Scotland at the Craven Cottage
in London on Wednesday, players of the World Cup
bound team have started to take stock of what
may be in the coming days with many of them
saying they don’t envy Coach Stephen Keshi at
this very difficult period.
Team Skipper, Joseph Yobo, said at the post
match conference that if he was the coach he will
find it difficult to drop any of the players that is
presently in the 30-man squad.
“Nigeria is blessed with talents and that is why I
think all the players here merit to be in Brazil, even
when we have some other very good ones still
hanging out.
If you watch the game against Scotland, you will
know that the ‘Big Boss’ needs to be pitied over
dropping players and picking those who will make
the final 23. It will be tough.
Stoke City forward Osaze Odemwingie, on his part
said he was happy at the response of his
teammates to his return to the national side. “But
how do we drop players now from this squad.
Everybody here is good but we should leave that
to the coach but I know it would be a tough task.
England based Shola Ameobi, declared that playing
for the Nigerian side has made him a better team
player because of the quality of players in camp
and wished he had started playing earlier for the
team. “We are all good but we should just pray for
the coach to ensure that he picks the best for the
World Cup”.
Towering defence ace, Azubuike Egwuekwe put it
more succinctly: “When I was going into the match
against Scotland I said to myself O’boy you are on
trial, now I know that its our coach who has a
really difficult job of picking the 23 players for
Brazil 2014 to do”.
