Keshi set to launch another winning streak

05 July 2013, 13:02

Lagos - Until his boys' defeats to Uruguay and Spain at the 2013 Fifa Confederations Cup tournament in Brazil last month, Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi had not lost a competitive game since taking the saddle as Super Eagles' Head Coach in November 2011, KickOffNigeria.com reports.

The 52-year old started with a 0-0 draw against Botswana in an international friendly at the Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City on November 12, 2011 and three days later, set his boys on rampage to defeat 2012 Cup of Nations-bound Zambia 2-0 at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in another friendly. The Zambians eventually won that Africa Cup tournament staged in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.

Keshi returns to the lush turf of the Ahmadu Bello Stadium on Saturday, to guide his much-loved home-based lads against their counterparts from Cote d'Ivoire.
