Keshi blames Cape Town pitch, not Agbim

16 January 2014, 18:59Israel Ojoko

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 Nations Championship.

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”.
