Kaduna - Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has told News24 that the defense line isn’t the team’s problem as they head into this weekend’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Le Sao of Chad.
The Super Eagles defense has come in for serious scrutiny in recent times, after failing to live up to expectations and the ‘Big Boss’ has eight defenders in the team preparing to face Chad on Saturday, but he says he is looking at making the entire team better, and not just the defense.

“No the defense is not the problem with the Super Eagles,” he told News24.
“We are looking at making the entire team better and we have so many good players that we have to give opportunities to and that is what we are doing.
“We will always look for someone that will give us what we need wherever we find weaknesses in the team and that is exactly what we are doing, so it’s about the entire team and not just the defense,” he said.
Keshi, himself an accomplished defender during his playing years, has Kenneth Omeruo, Godfrey Oboabona, William Troost-Ekong, Leon Balogun, Chima Akas, Azubuike Egwuekwe, Solomon Kwambe and Kingsley Madu for the game against Chad.
