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
“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.
