Keshi explains Agbim drop

13 February 2014, 13:14

Lagos - Nigeria head coach, Stephen Keshi, has given reasons for leaving out unattached goalkeeper Chigozie Agbim for the international friendly match against Mexico in Atlanta on March 5, SuperSport reports.

Keshi left out Agbim from a list of 23 players named for the friendly.

The 52-year-old Nigerian manager explained from the United States of America (USA), where he is at present on holidays with his family, that he dropped Agbim since the African champions will play just one international game next month.

"I don't think there is need to start raising issues on players left out of the friendly match against Mexico or those named in the team for the game. It is just a test game to see a few new players and those who we have not seen in a long while. So leaving out Chigozie Agbim and a few other players is no big deal," he said.
