Dosu Joseph backs Keshi return

05 November 2014, 20:20

Lagos - Former Nigeria goalkeeper Dosu Joseph said the return of Stephen Keshi to the national squad could only be viewed as a good omen for the team, as it bids to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Keshi had briefly parted ways with the Nigeria Football Federation after the squad had failed to record two victories against Sudan in Group A.

However, following subsequent pleas from the relevant authorities in that country Keshi was summoned back to the national set-up where he is expected to finish what he has started with the squad.

"Keshi has unfinished job with Nigeria, he's played four games in the qualifiers with three points and we need outright wins in the remaining two matches to make it through," Joseph told the Vanguard.

"He perhaps feels he has some unfinished job and that's the reason he made a u-turn. If he can take us to the promise land it'll be appreciated, if otherwise he'll still be a fulfilled man.

"It's a good thing he's back, he should finish what he started and I'm sure we all want to see the Eagles in the Nations Cup. Now that CAF has put its foot down on the date for the competition, he should go on and do his job and Nigerians will watch."
