Austin Jay Jay Okocha has urged Nigerians to respect Coach Stephen Keshi’s choice of players invited for the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Kenya in Calabar.

The former Super Eagles captain said this at the Lagos Lawn Tennis Club where he featured in a celebrity match with Nollywood star, Kanayo O Kanayo, adding that nobody knows the team better than the coach and those he invited were the players he feels comfortable with.

“Keshi has invited those he wants for the Kenya match. All I can say is we must respect his decision and support him all the way,” Okocha said.

The former BBC African Footballer of the year however advised Super Eagles players to focus on the task ahead after the long celebrations that followed the Nations Cup triumph.

“The players must be aware that every team that is meeting them now works extra hard because they want to be the first to beat the African champions. Kenya will aim to embarrass us here and that is what the Eagles must fight to avoid.”

Okocha pointed out that as African champions, the Eagles must work hard to remain at the top. “They have to play like champions. They must apply the same zeal and commitment which they exhibited at the Nations Cup.”

While he expressed optimism that the Super Eagles will beat the Kenyans, he however warned against complacency. “They must not underrate the visitors,” he warned.
