Keshi happy with draw, but…

Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi says he is happy with Nigeria’s draw in Kigali against Rwanda but not totally satisfied with the performance of the players.

“We did not come here for a draw but that is what we got. We have made some observations after the match and we will work on them as we prepare for subsequent games.

“I will not give excuses but I must say we did not have enough time with the foreign based players like we did in four weeks with the home lads. I will simply say congratulations to Rwanda, but we’ll be better next time around,” Keshi said.

Eagles skipper Joseph Yobo, said he was disappointed but not shocked at the performance of the Rwandans as there are no longer small teams in world football.

“We came away with a goalless draw, everybody expected us to win but that is football. Tell our fans that they will get a better result next time.”

The game was Stephen Keshi’s first competitive game has head coach of the Super Eagles and is a 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match.
