Super
Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi insists injured striker, Emmanuel Emenike remains
an integral and important part of the Super Eagles.

Emenike
scored four goals for Nigeria at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations before hobbling
off with an injury during the semi final game against Mali which the Eagles won
4-1 but Keshi says he is confident Emenike will play against Kenya in a World
Cup qualifier next month.
“Emenike
is a very important component of our national team set up and we have to be
concerned if he is in form, injured or otherwise and that is why we are a bit
concerned about reports that he will not be available for the game against
Kenya.
“We
can never give up about such an important player and we wish him the quickest
of recoveries no matter what the medical team anywhere is saying”, Keshi
declared.
On
Thursday morning news filtered out that Emenike could be out for eight weeks
ruling him out of the all important World Cup Qualifier against Kenya but Keshi
says he has not given up hope yet.
“I
feel those reports were exaggerated and while we wil be waiting for final words
from both national team and Spartak Moscow medics we will just be hopeful that
he can play.”
The
Super Eagles supremo praised the consistency of the top striker, declaring that
even when he has several other options for Emenike, he’s also hoping that the
player makes it on time to the set up ahead of the Kenya World Cup qualifier
duel, as he’s trying to build a team that has started to gradually take shape.
