Keshi: I miss Oboabona, Reuben

13 December 2013, 18:39Israel Ojoko

Abuja - Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has said he missed players like Godfrey Oboabona, Gabriel Reuben and Juwon Oshaniwa, who were part of the home based team he was raising before they departed for club sides in Europe, though he is happy at the player’s progress.

His joy, he said stemmed from the fact that their departure apart from bettering their career and status in life also offers the coaching crew a fresh opportunity to discover new talents from the abundance that Nigeria has.

Keshi was speaking in Abuja, after the Eagles defeated Prisons FC 4-1, in its first practice match since camp opened last Monday for the CHAN tournament. He said his optimism is as a result of the quality of players that he has in camp for the tournament.

“The only problem we have is that of time, we have little time to prepare but we will still give it our best shot and ensure that we replace some of our players that have left us for bigger things abroad”.

He added that by the time the team plays more test games, those who can make it to the tournament would have been discovered and Nigeria should be able to present a fairly strong side for the CHAN tourney.
