NFF unveils Keshi on Thursday

The Nigeria Football Federation will on Thursday in Abuja formally unveil the new Head Coach of Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi at a colourful ceremony inside the National Stadium complex.

The event, which will take place at the Media Centre of the Stadium as from 12 noon, will last exactly 90 minutes – the regulation time for a football match.

Keshi, the longest-reigning captain of the Nigeria senior team in history, was on Wednesday last week named the new Super Eagles’ Head Coach by the Executive Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation, following a recommendation by the Technical Sub-Committee.

‘Big Boss’ as he was fondly known in his playing days, has already named former Eagles’ Captains Sylvanus Okpala and Daniel Amokachi as his assistants, with Ike Shorounmu, Nigeria’s first choice goalkeeper at the 2002 FIFA World Cup finals, as goalkeepers’ trainer.

A welcome address by NFF President, Alhaji Aminu Maigari will be followed by the signing of the contractual agreement between the NFF and Keshi, with the NFF and Nigerians expecting the new Head Coach to not only return the Super Eagles to the top drawer of the international game, but also to qualify Nigeria for the 2013 African Nations Cup and the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals.
