In defence of Stephen Keshi

Since Stephen Keshi “failed” to qualify the Super Eagles for the AFCON 2015 in Equatorial Guinea to defend their title, it has been: “Keshi is a failure,” “Keshi is a bad coach,” “Keshi is arrogant,” “Keshi takes bribe from players,” “Keshi is the worst thing that ever happened to our football,” and so on.

The fall and fall of Nigerian football

I should start by saying that the ouster of our senior national football team, Super Eagles, even though some people like to call it derisively ‘chicken eagles’ while our president, Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan, recently at Uyo stadium referred to it as ‘eagles,’ from the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2015 to be hosted by Equatorial Guinea, was long in coming. The ominous signs had always been there that our team was not after all ‘super.’

BYE-BYE Stephen Keshi

There are issues I consider very serious, one of which ought to grace this page to­day; there is the issue of obvious threats to our current democratic practice which if I had handled it today would have been pegged around the bastardization of the internal democracy in our political parties

Super Eagles: The coach we do not need

Out-going (?) Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, might have effectively made a tacit admission: his February, 2013 African Cup of Nations victory came only through sheer luck and providence. He came on board in November, 2011 promoting the usual Nigerian football musical chart-buster starring the weather-beaten title track, “Building a New Team.”

Maybe, Keshi should walk away

Stephen Okechukwu Keshi has been a player, captain, and coach of the Super Eagles. And that’s quite a feat! He was in the squad that won Nigeria’s first Africa Cup of Nations trophy in 1994, but was absent in the Team Nigeria that won gold in football at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.
