Keshi promises attractive football against Chad

10 June 2015, 13:41

Kaduna - Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has assured that his team will play an attacking brand of football in Saturday’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Le Sao of Chad.

The 53-year old have often been criticized for his teams’ often ‘lukewarm’ and ‘unattractive’ brand of football, but Keshi disagrees with that and says he has always favored an attacking and exciting brand of football and says it will be the same style when they face Chad on Saturday.

“If you watch our games since I came here (Super Eagles), you will notice I like attacking football,” he told News24. “I like good football and I like playing attacking football for the fans and also for us too because we have to make things easier for us too.

“So I can promise you that it won’t be any different when we face Chad because there is no other way I know, other than play attractive football and win the game,” Keshi said.

The Super Eagles are presently in Kaduna, venue of the match against Chad, and played a friendly against Nigeria National League side, Kaduna United, in which they won 4-0 on Tuesday.

There are presently no injury worries in the team, with the only concern being Steven Ukoh, who didn’t travel with the team to Kaduna.
