Super Eagles first choice keeper, Vincent Enyeama says he won’t be drawn into trying to compare Stephen Keshi’s style with that of his predecessor, Samson Siasia

Enyeam says he does not indulge in such and will rather look on both men as individuals with their own unique peculiarities.

“I respect each one them because they have their own uniqueness and way of doing things.

“Their training sessions have their uniqueness and if you know me well I will not be drawn into saying which one is better than the other,” Enyeama said.

“I respect each one the way he is. Why would I want to do otherwise?”

Meanwhile, it was a sweet bonding for the national team; Super Eagles and the U20 side, the Flying Eagles, as both sides trained Thursday morning at the FIFA Goal Project site in Abuja, ahead of the senior team’s departure for Malawi.

The younger Eagles had arrived earlier for their training before their senior counterparts did and when it was exactly 8am, the Flying Eagles vacated the pitch for the Super Eagles, but not before they were addressed by Keshi and his crew, with John Obuh, who handles the junior side beaming with smiles.

Keshi told the team that they should forget about their not winning the South African Invitation Tourney and look forward to their qualifier against Tanzania, while also urging them to pray for their senior colleagues.

“Within a short time in camp, you have reached this level and I’m sure that you can only get better and I wish you well against Tanzania, because I will be backing you all the way to the World Cup,” he said.

Obuh and his players, said they were humbled by the submission of the national team handler and will join other Nigerians in praying to ensure that the team comes out victorious in its World Cup qualifier this weekend against the Flames of Malawi.

“We know the quality in your team and we are sure that you will win the game in Malawi,” Obuh said.
One other visitor at the Super Eagles training session on Thursday morning was Super Falcons Head Coach, Kadiri Ikhana, who told Keshi that he has come to see the boys who will rediscover Nigerian football by winning its games home and away.

“I have absolute believe in what you are doing and I’m sure that come Saturday, all Nigerians and the team particularly will be singing victory songs”, he said.

Ikhana recalled that the Eagles prayed for his team in their away game against Zimbabwe and they came out victorious and they are doing the same for the team against Malawi on Saturday.
