He told FIFA.com: "Everybody is happy in West Africa; Ghana got their result (2-2 draw with Germany) and we won.
"It's good for the continent.
"The fighting spirit we showed was good. I never thought that we wouldn't make the round of 16. I have the players.
"But look at Iran today, if it was not for Lionel Messi. We need to work hard for the game against Argentina."
"I'm happy we won our first World Cup game since 1998, I hope this continues, I liked what I saw today," Keshi told the post-match press conference. "It happens in Africa nobody gives us a chance, they were saying the Iran result was the worst ever, then we saw Iran against Argentina (the Iranians lost 1-0 but only to a Lionel Messi winner in time added on), if the Argentines didnÂ´t have Messi it would have been the same score line.
"I never had a doubt we wouldn't never make it as long as the players were ready to play. I felt the character the boys showed, it was better today, tempo was very high."Match-winner and man of the match Odemwingie said "The goal means a lot to me,"
"But the win was down to 90 minutes of concentration and effort from my team-mates.
"The most important thing today was the character. We even enjoyed defending together.
"I don't know anyone who doesn't love this country. Playing for my fatherland is an honour and a pleasure.
