Currently placed third on the table with four points, Keshi, who is returning after being sacked for two weeks, said he has the crop of players to successfully qualify Nigeria for AFCON 2015 and defend their title won in 2013.

“We have the players who can do Nigeria proud in the remaining qualifier games and I know somehow we will make it to the finals and retain our trophy.”

Nigeria will need to beat Congo with a two goal margin and as well beat South Africa to book a ticket to Morocco.
