The Chief Coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi has said that the pre-season tour of various clubs in Europe is good for players of the Super Eagles playing in such clubs as it will make the players fit ahead of Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Rwanda next month.
“The good thing is that the leagues would start before the match, and also virtually all of them are on pre-season tour with their clubs, which makes it easy for us relating to the issue of fitness,” Keshi said.
He said that he is already preparing for the 2015 Nations Cup qualifiers even though he is yet to formalise his contract extension.
Keshi is still in negotiations with the NFF, although he is expected to sign a new contract this week, but he told Sporting Life he was already speaking to his players.
After the success of his first two years, Keshi pointed out that his second coming would be geared towards consolidation.
“Our building processes continue. In this new phase, we are now going to consolidate on whatever gains we had the last time. The areas we had lapses, we are going to fortify them, and be able to give Nigerians a very strong team that they can always be proud of,” he said
