Malawi World Cup Qualifiers - its not do or die - Keshi
« on: September 05, 2013, 02:18:04 AM »
HEAD coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi, says Saturday’s Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifier against the Flames of Malawi billed for Calabar is not a do-or die affair.

Keshi told sportswriters in Calabar on Wednesday that his experience in the game does not call for such attitude.

“There is no football match that is a ‘do-or-die’ game for me even right from my active playing days but I can assure Nigerians that we will certainly come out victorious after the Malawi encounter.’’

“What I do is to take every match with absolute concentration and give it my very best,” he stressed.

“For the match coming on Saturday, again we want to do Nigeria proud.  The players and the coaching crew have intensified efforts to ensure that we come out victorious by beating Malawi here in Calabar,” Keshi said.

The senior national team's players have all landed for the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Malawi with the exception of Portugal based midfielder John Ogu

John Ogu, who plays his club football in Portugal for Academica de Coimbra is the only Super Eagle that is yet to hit Nigeria for Saturday’s 2014 World Cup qualifier against Malawi's.

Goal findings revealed that the player experienced flight hitches from Portugal but will arrive on Thursday.

18 Eagles' players defied the rain to train on Wednesday evening in the official second training session of the team.

They were the three goalkeepers and 15 outfield players.

Three more players: Victor Moses, Shola Ameobi and Elderson Echiejile arrived around 6pm on Wednesday after their flight was initially redirected to Port Harcourt because of bad weather.

They didn't participate in the team's evening training but were sighted at the Transcorp Hotel base of the team during the evening meal.

But AC Brescia of Italy's Nnamdi Oduamadi couldn't arrive Calabar on Wednesday despite arriving the country from his base early enough to hit camp.
