I knew Super Eagles would Lose — Keshi



Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, has claimed that he saw his team’s 3-2 defeat to the Congo side in their 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the U.J. Esuene Stadium, coming. In his words:
    “I’m very disappointed. It was not just the result but the way we played in the first half. I was like a soothsayer because I saw it coming and I talked to the boys that they had to be aggressive and first to the ball.
    “I’ve played against the Congolese team before and I know they play tip-tap football. We scored the first goal and that was it. It’s a shame that we had opportunities, mostly in the second half, but we could not score.
    “I told them (players) they were not playing their game. They were not themselves, they were not playing, they were second to the ball and they needed to change the mentality. They came back in the second half and you could see the difference. But if you are playing a team like this, they are going to come hard and park the bus. And that’s what they did in the second half. Who won’t do it?”
The Super Eagles are now 3rd in Group A of the qualifiers behind South Africa and Congo.
