Abuja - Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi, says he is
thrilled by the responses of some of the players that were not picked for the
World Cup party, especially German based, Leon Balogun, John Ogu, Brown Ideye and
Keshi who spoke from his Abuja base said picking the 30-man
list for the World Cup was a difficult task and he was ready to please all but
that can never be the case.
“I wanted the best for the initial camping list but sadly we
cannot take everybody along, we have to drop some of our best and committed
players, I am happy that the players
understand that fact.”
“I heard what Leon Balogun said and I must say I am thrilled
that he understands the very difficult task we have been given by Nigerians, I
trust that sooner than later Leon will be back in the team. We are targeting to
bring him back during the qualifiers for the Nations Cup in Morocco and I trust
we will still be in charge.“
“Balogun we reason is one of our stars for the future of the
national team”, Keshi said.
The Eagles boss while declaring his unalloyed loyalty to the
Nigerian FA, called on the media to support him and the NFF in the task of
making the country great through football come Brazil 2014 World Cup.
“They create imaginary disputes between me and my employers,
but I dare say there is no disagreement between us, all I want is for all
including the players who did not make the initial 30-man list to Brazil to
support us, so that we can excel at the World Cup”, he declared.
