Keshi believes in new Eagles

03 January 2014, 21:32Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has expressed confidence in the newly assembled Super Eagles as they file out against Ethiopia in an international friendly on Saturday.

Keshi picked 23 players for the 2014 African Nations Championship in South Africa billed for January 11 till February 1.

With the exit of most players from the squad, Keshi will have to rely on new recruits whom he said he has absolute belief in to deliver the goods at the CHAN tourney, with the Ethiopian friendly a good test.

“We have talents all over the country but we don’t have time enough to groom them but I’m sure that the ones that we have chosen will give a good account of themselves in South Africa”, Keshi said in a statement.

He added that naturally the players are gifted but only need a little bit of self-confidence while on the pitch.

“That we have been trying to do,  so that when we come out fighting everything is possible and nothing will be impossible, the results we are getting are quite positive”, he said.

With the exit of the likes of Godfrey Oboabona, Sunday Mba, Gabriel Reuben, Papa Idris, Juwon Oshaniwa and many others who started the battle with the national team as home based stars two years ago, Keshi has been forced to rely on new stars on the bloc and he insists they will not disappoint
