Happy Birthday Stephen Keshi

Stephen keshi
Stephen Keshi (52) played a key role in Nigeria’s maiden qualification for the FIFA World Cup in 1994, the same year that the Super Eagles prevailed in the African Cup of Nations for a second time. Almost 20 years later, the former international, appointed coach of his country’s national side in 2011, led his players to continental glory once more in 2013, a victory that provided the team with a berth at the FIFA Confederations Cup. Keshi also recently oversaw Nigeria’s qualification for the 2014 World Cup, the second time he has achieved such a feat as a coach, following a successful period in charge of Togo in the run-up to Germany 2006. A commanding defender in his playing days, he triumphed in two West African Club Championships with New Nigeria Bank, before defending the colours of Ivoirian outfits Stade d’Abidjan and Africa Sports, with whom he earned a league winners’ medal.

 After exporting his defensive skills to Belgium, he played for Lokeren, Anderlecht, where he added a Belgian Championship and two Belgian Cups to his footballing CV, and Molenbeek. Spells at American clubs CCV Hydra and Sacramento Scorpions followed, but it was at Perlis, in Malaysia, that he finally brought the curtain down on his career.

Janary 23 birthday is his birthday. Osas eye will lle to congratulate the rising star, innovator, leader and champion of Nigeria's super eagles.
