Keshi hails Agbim’s improvement

20 January 2014, 14:01Israel Ojoko

Cape Town - Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi has applauded the improvement of captain and goalkeeper, Chigozie Agbim in the 3-1 victory over South Africa at the African Nations Championship.

Agbim made clinical saves to ensure Nigeria claim maximum points on Sunday. He was floppy in the first two games against Mali and Mozambique.

Keshi, who is excited seeing his side qualify for the quarter final said mistakes are bound to happen but Agbim has made corrections.

“I do not see a reason why we need to punish the person again; I believe in my goalkeeper, my players and I thank God he had a great, wonderful game against South Africa and I pray that he keeps on going from here”, he said on Brila FM.

“There is something we need to realize in this world, there are no perfect humans and when we make mistakes, we need to carry on and be given the confidence to go on”.

Mali finished top of Group A, followed by Nigeria. But host South Africa crashed out alongside Mozambique.
