Stephen Keshi Resigns As Super Eagles Coach
Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi, has resigned his appointment after leading the team to the second round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
After the Eagles were eliminated by France in the round of 16 match in Brasilia on Monday, the Delta State-born tactician said it was time to move on after leading his country’s national team to lift the Africa Nations Cup trophy last year and taking them to the ongoing World Cup in Brazil.
“I have to go back to my family and face fresh challenges,” Keshi said.
Similarly, Super Eagles Captain, Yobo Joseph said he has had enough and can go no further as national team player. “I think I should give the younger ones the opportunity to forge ahead. I have nothing new to offer,” Yobo, whose own goal in the match against France guaranteed the French side a place in the quarter finals.
