Keshi gives Super Eagles players deadline for Scotland friendly

23 April 2014, 08:44

Abuja - Coach Stephen Keshi said Super Eagles players invited for the friendly against Scotland are expected to arrive at the team’s camp latest on May 27.

The media reports that the match against Scotland will take place at the Craven Cottage in Fulham, England on May 28.

Keshi said the deadline was given to the players to enable the team have one day to get its strategy for the match right.

“We are playing on May 28, and we all should be there on May 27 so that we can have at least a one-day training session before we play,” he said.

The coach said he was still working to get 30 players out of the list of 38 already submitted to the Nigeria Football Association (NFA).

The media reports that the list was to be submitted to FIFA on May 10.

On the 38-player list, Keshi said players which made the provisional list were invited based on their performances in their various clubs and communication with the team’s handlers.
