- List out Monday
Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi took his wards through another rigorous session Sunday morning, one of the last before the announcement of the final 23 man list for the World Cup in Brazil later this month and came away with a damning conclusion: “These players have all convinced me of their abilities but they are also confusing me on who to or not to drop”.
He said so far all the players deserve to go to the World Cup but there was nothing he could do to change the laws governing the World Cup. Adding that the players who will be so dropped should take it in good faith and not conclude that they have been victimized.
He continued thus: “God, it’s a good, difficult decision to make regarding the naming of the final 23 but we have no choice but to do it, otherwise we will be failing in our duties. The players have been so committed, so professional that you feel like shedding a tear because some of them must just go home”.
The list of the final 23 players that will be taken to the World Cup is billed to be sent to the NFF for onward release to world football governing body, FIFA and the Nigerian and global soccer public.
