Nigeria: Keshi Calls Unselected Players for Support

Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has not left unselected players without encouragement.

The African reigning champion coach could do nothing than dropping some of his players as only 23 Eagles are expected to defend national colors in Rainbow Nation.

Sorry for unselected Eagles, Keshi encouraged them and call them upon to stand up tall and support their teammates set to be in action in next African Nations Championship to be held from January 11 to February 1 in South Africa.

"We must pray for our brothers who made it because tomorrow it will be our turn but most importantly we must be disciplined and play consistently for our various club sides," Keshi told the players.

Nigeria is housed in Group A alongside hosts South Africa, Mozambique, Nigeria and Mali.
