Super Eagles’s coach, Stephen Keshi says he is impressed with the performances of some of Nigeria’s foreign based players in their Leagues.

From Victor Anichebe, to Yakubu Aiyegbeni (In pic) and Victor Moses, Eagles boss, Stephen Keshi, has been keeping a close tab on his internationals and he declared on Monday evening that he has been hugely impressed by their performance.

Keshi says he would not be intimidated to name the players that he would use for the national team opening Nations Cup qualifier against the Amavuvbi of Rwanda.

“As the whole world can see, most of our national team players like Yakubu Aiyegbeni, Osaze Odemwengie, Victor Moses, Ike Uche and Victor Anichebe are doing quite well. That is not the issue, we want a situation whereby they will keep doing well so that at the end of the day we pick only the best for the national team,” he said.

He called for a change of heart from the Nigerian soccer populace, noting that if a man did not perform in a previous encounter, it does not mean he would not be a hero in the next.

“I’m not particular about any player, but we must give all our international players equal opportunities. That is the focus and programme of this present national team set up.”

Have your say. We'd love to know what you think.
