Keshi believes in team

18 November 2014, 12:31Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi says he has hope in his team to book a ticket to the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations after Wednesday’s game against Bafana Bafana.

Nigeria will be without Godfrey Oboabona (two yellow cards) and Hope Akpan (shoulder injury) for the tie against South Africa.

Keshi said it was going to be a difficult task to do without two regulars in his team but he also has hope in the remaining squad to hold their own against any team in the world.

“It would have been better to play all my regulars in this match, but since it has turned out like this, I expect the others to show what they can do in the face of challenges, and I trust they will do very well against Bafana Bafana.”

The game between Nigeria and South Africa kicks off 6pm local time, and the West African needs an outright victory to book a ticket to the 2015 AFCON. Bafana Bafana has already qualified.
