Addressing the players at the team’s evening training in Rustenberg Sunday evening, Keshi admitted the team may have been at the receiving end of some poor officiating by referees but they should learn to finish games well and with wide margins before such calls are made.
“We should win our matches before bad calls are made so that those who know next to nothing about football will not become our overnight technical advisers. You all know how hard we have worked. It is left for you to get the job done”, he said.
The gaffer again restated his confidence in the abilities of his 23-man squad to do Nigeria proud at the tourney, adding that the Super Eagles have a rich tradition in the Nations Cup that must be sustained and improved upon by the present squad.
