NFF holds emergency meeting over Keshi’s future

Stephen Keshi
There could be a major shake-up in the Super Eagles technical crew except Stephen Keshi leads the team to victory over Ethiopia on Tuesday.
The Eagles have drawn two matches in Group C against Burkina Faso and Zambia and must beat Ethiopia to progress to the next round of the competition. But the Nigeria Football Federation seems to have lost patience against the coach leading to a crisis meeting held in Nelspruit on Saturday.
A reliable source present at the meeting said Keshi could be on his way out despite NFF’s earlier promise to retain him no matter his achievement in South Africa. The source, who pleaded anonymity, said it would be an embarrassment if the Eagles failed to reach the next stage.
“They got all the financial assistance needed and all the support from the FA, so what is the problem?” said the source.
“The team is not playing well and that is why the late goals are painful. We have been hanging on dangerously and that must not continue. The Eagles must show commitment and play beyond the average level. But if it continues this way, we may seek an alternative to solve the technical issue,” he added.
