"Yes, I do have some knowledge of them," Keshi told News24 Nigeria.
"I played against them when I was coach of Mali in 2008, and I can tell you they are very strong.
"They have some very physical players that play in Europe.
"I know there's a lot of difference between 2008 and now because they have a different coach and different players but I know they are strong.
"I have seen some of them and I will see some more between now and Tuesday," Keshi said.
