Keshi to introduce more new players to Eagles

17 June 2015, 13:02

Lagos - The Super Eagles will continue to have more new faces in the team as they seek to get some balance, Coach Stephen Keshi has confirmed.

The former African champions had four debutants last Saturday as they beat Chad 2-0 in their first 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, and Super Eagles gaffer Stephen Keshi says he will keep bringing in new faces till he finds the right balance for the team.

“Even if you’ve had a team for five or six years, you will still have one or two additions or subtractions to make in your team because we’re always looking for that balance,” he said.

“Against Chad I had several new faces and they are players that I have been studying for some time and their quality of play and I knew if we had time to work together it would be like we had been together for a long time.

“We have to do what we have to do to find a very solid team and I have confidence in this group of players because there is a lot of potentials and we have to keep giving them more opportunities,” Keshi said.
