Super Eagles boss, Steve Keshi, says he’s ready to take at least five players from the Nigerian League to Kigali for the 2013 Nations Cup qualifier, if the present players in camp prove that they are better than those based abroad.
He even declared that he will be ready to take up to ten players to Kigali from the home-based Eagles if the 30 players in camp, give him the reason to do so.
“But they must show the hunger that they are better than the ones who are coming from Europe and are ready to win games for Nigeria and resist showing any complex, because those who are now in Europe started from here.”
Keshi bared his mind when team psychologist, Robinson Okosun, drilled the players psychologically to prepare them for the challenge of playing for the national team.
Big boss Keshi, however said if the players fail to show enough drive, he will still take at least three of them to Kigali for the qualifier.
“I’m telling you clearly now, so that you can go out there and prove to me and the rest of the technical crew that you can play better than those whom we often call upon from Europe.”
