Cape Town - Head Coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi would
blame the ‘poor state’ of the Cape Town pitch rather than hit out at a floppy goalkeeping
from captain, Chigozie Agbim in a 4-2 win over Mozambique at the 2014 African
Keshi insisted the entire team should be responsible for the
outcome of a game instead of laying blames at the door step of the goalkeeper,
as football is a team work.
“It’s a team work and we cannot single out one individual
for blame, otherwise we had a situation in the game against Mozambique when a
player had an empty net and yet could not slot the ball in until the opposing
defender cleared it, he said in a press statement.
“I have worked with Agbim now for two years plus and if he
was not good he will not be here, we must learn to understand our players and
forgive errors, especially as he is the last man in the defence and his own
errors are easily seen by all”.
