Keshi weeps over Dike’s injury

20 February 2014, 10:29Israel Ojoko

Brasilia - Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi was practically in tears when he learnt of the injury to power playing Toronto FC of Canada forward, Bright Dike.

Dike was injured while training with his team-mates on Monday.

Keshi has already instructed team doctor, Ibrahim Gyaran to get in touch with the medics of the player’s club to know the extent of damage done to a potential World Cup debutant.

“No, no, this is very sad. I can’t believe this is happening to a player with such enthusiasm to play for Nigeria at the highest level, we will surely miss him, if it’s true he would not be ready on time for the World Cup”.

“I can’t think of any replacement for now until we get to the real facts of the matter”, Keshi said in Florianopolis, Brazil, where he is presently attending the FIFA seminar for Mundial 2014 along with coaches of other qualified nations and their officials.
