I Was Not Sacked -Keshi Explains

Stephen Keshi

Keshi who spoke with newsmen while at the Kwara State stadium yesterday during the final of the 28th edition of the All Financial Institutions Football competition explained that his contract with the NFF ended with the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, making it inappropriate for anyone to say he was sacked.

Keshi being an optimistic leader made it known that the Super Eagles could still qualify for the African Cup of Nations if the team really work hard at it. According to Punch, he said:

“I was never sacked by the NFF. It’s if you have an existing contract that you would be sacked. Super Eagles can still qualify for the 2015 AFCON. They have the chance, because the group is still open. They only need to work harder. “We need a lot of encouragement from Nigerians for the players to go ahead and qualify. I think we can qualify for the 2015 AFCON,” he said.

Nigeria is currently occupying the third position of Group A with four points, trailing Congo with seven points and South Africa leading the group with eight points while Sudan places last with three points.

Nigeria will play away to Congo on November 14, and tackle group leader, the Bafana Bafana of South Africa on November 19.

Meanwhile, First Bank of Nigeria defeated Central Bank of Nigeria by a lone goal to win the 28th edition of the All Financial Institutions Football competition organised by the NFF and CBN. The only goal was scored in the 56th minute by Gafar Lasisi.
