African Nation Cup 2015: Nigeria sack coach Stephen Keshi

Nigeria sack coach Stephen Keshi

After winning the 2013 African Nation Cup with Nigeria, Stephen Keshi will not continue as the Super Eagles of Nigeria coach.

Keshi’s recent record with the Super Eagles of Nigeria has been poor. Nigeria has 1 out of 9 points. He has recorded only two wins in 13 games and heavy loss against Congo and Sudan. The latter has left Nigeria’s hopes of qualification hanging by a thread. Keshi is sacked by the NFF and replaced with Amodu Shuaibu to take over from him for the final 2 games of the African Nations Cup qualifier. Is it too late?

The decision was among others announced by the NFF Executive Committee after a meeting in Abuja on Wednesday night ‘in the interest of Nigerian football and the desire to ensure qualification for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations finals’.

Keshi’s technical and backroom staff were also fired along with him. In their place, Salisu Yusuf, Gbenga Ogunbote and Alloy Agu will join Amodu for the final two games of the qualifying series.-
