NFF Confirm Keshi For Eagles CHAN Assignment

first_imgSuper Eagles head coach, Stephen Keshi, has been saddled with the responsibilities of steering the home-based Eagles to the African Nations Championship.Nigeria is yet to qualify for the competition since its inception with Niger stopping the home-based Eagles led by Okey Emordi from qualifying for the 2011 finals held in Sudan.The Eagles have been drawn against Ivory Coast after the 2014 qualifiers fixtures were made by CAF two weeks ago.Chairman of the Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation, Chris Green, informs Complete Sports that the Glass House has no intention of appointing another coach to lead the home-based Eagles through the CHAN qualifiers as was the case in the past.Green added that Keshi has been mandated to lead the team through the CHAN qualifiers.“Keshi has been asked to do that and he is already working on that.
