Coach Stephen Keshi has expressed his best confidence with regards to Nigeria’s qualification for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon).
The defending champions are third in their pool in a final qualifying tournament with four points from four matches. They must win their remaining matches away in Congo and at home to South Africa to have any chance of clinching an automatic qualification ticket to the finals.
“We have the players who can do Nigeria proud in the remaining qualifier games and I know somehow we will make it to the finals and retain our trophy,” said the newly reinstated Nigeria coach.
Team administrator Dayo Enebi Achor is also optimistic that the Super Eagles will succeed in a last gasp rally for Afcon qualification.
“The entire team is back now and we have to make a statement as the defending champions,” Achor declared. “God will see us through.”
