World Cup: Keshi says Eagles must improve to succeed in Brazil


Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has admitted that his team must improve if they would succeed at the World Cup in Brazil.
He said this after the Eagles drew 0-0 with fellow World Cup finalists Greece in Philadelphia last night.
He said, “We will always have very difficult games but the motivation will be to do a lot better than we managed in our last couple of games.
“The truth is we didn’t play our game. The importance of a friendly game is to know your weakness and what needs improvement.
“What I found out is that we were not able to keep our ball possession like we did for the last 12 to 15 minutes. The whole idea was to control the game.”
“All I need is the mentality and discipline to dominate your game and take your chances
“In friendlies you can correct your mistakes but in a tournament it can cost us dearly.
“So we’ll see how it goes in the next game because that is another chance to improve on this performance.”
Nigeria’s last friendly before the World Cup will come against the USA on Saturday in Jacksonville, Florida after which the team will depart for Brazil on 8 June to prepare for their first match of the tournament.
Nigeria’s first game is against Iran followed by Bosnia-Herzegovina with their last group game against Argentina. (Nigeria politics online)
