NIGERIA CRASHES OUT AS KESHI, ENYEAMA AND YOBO QUIT

NIGERIA CRASHES OUT AS KESHI, ENYEAMA AND YOBO QUIT

Nigeria’s senior national team, the Super Eagles failed to fly yesterday as it was downed 2-0 by the French National team fondly called Le Blue.
As a result of this sad loss there are strong indications that Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi, team Captain, Joseph Yobo and first choice goalie, Vincent Enyeama may have had their last involvement with the national team.
Keshi who praised his boys in his post-match interview blamed the referee for making some errors which he said contributed to the loss.
Asked about his future with the team, Keshi hinted at his departure when he revealed that the Nigeria Football Federation is yet to offer him a new contract-and therefore, he was technically a free agent.
He had also told his players farewell, informing them that he may not be available to lead them again, thanking them individually for their commitment and spirit.
On his part Captain Yobo Joseph who mistakenly scored an own goal to put a sad mark on his 100th Nigerian cap, stated that he had a very glorious Career and since there were many young ones in the team, it was time to finally call it quits.
He stated that he wanted to concentrate on his club football career and also spend more time with his family.
In the same vien, a crest-fallen Enyeama said it is likely the loss against France will be his last for the National Team.
He noted that he had given a lot to the team for so many years and was considering his options. “I will consult my wife, and make a final decision, but it seems this will be my last” Enyeama told the reporter.
It will be recalled that the trio may just be overwhelmed by the loss and there is every possibility that they may change their minds like Yobo and Keshi did after towing the same line immediately Nigeria won the African Cup of Nations’ Cup in South Africa.
If Keshi eventually resigns, he would have proved us right because last week, we exclusively reported that the Big Boss has been approached to take over the National Coaching job in South Africa and he will quit the Super Eagles.
Interestingly, if he accepts the Bafana Bafana job, Keshi will be in direct battle with his successor as Nigeria and South Africa are in the same Nations’ Cup Qualifying Group.
