Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi can’t wait for the return to full fitness of striker, Bright Dike, centre-back, Kenneth Omeruo and midfielder, Gabriel Reuben, as the 2014 Brazil World Cup edges closer.
The Team’s Media Officer Ben Olaiya quoted Keshi, who is presently on a family visit in the United States of America, as saying that the three players could add depth to his team in any major tournament.
“I am in touch with the three of them and have been praying with them and for them because Nigeria and their club sides need them because they are at their prime and very good at what they are doing. So I will want Nigerians to join me in praying for them so that they can return to action on time,” Keshi said.
John Obi Mikel’s first league goal, which landed Chelsea at the top of the Premier League for 24 hours last Saturday, excited the tactician just as you would expect and this is what he had to say:
“I have been trying to reach him but to no avail but I am absolutely delighted because I always tell him he can do it whether at club or national team level but he has to move closer to the goal area.
“He has done it on one or two occasions with the national team and there should be nothing special about his scoring for Chelsea but a lot also depends on what Coach Mourinho wants him to play for the club. I am sure the goals will start pouring in for him now,” Keshi added.
Keshi also said he envisions new Liverpool signing Victor Moses becoming one of the legends of the game, not only for the Eagles but also for European football, because of his positive attitude to football.
