Staphen Keshi sacked as Super Eagles Coach

Stephen Keshi was sacked from the Nigeria job on Thursday morning where he has held an interim coaching job since September despite his team’s 3-1 defeat of Sudan a few hours before.
In his place, Amodu Shaibu, a former national team trainer, has been handed the job of leading the Super Eagles to their remaining 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers next month before a foreign technical adviser will be hired.
Keshi was told to go after the African champions could only muster four points from four matches in the qualifiers thereby putting in jeopardy the nation’s quest to defend the title won last year in South Africa.
The 52-year-old, who also took Nigeria to the second round of the World Cup in Brazil, was kicked out alongside his assistants Daniel Amokachi and Ike Shorunmu.
 Why Stephen Keshi was sacked as Nigeria coach

FORWARD WE MUST HEAD

The NFF has taken the best decision possible based on the prevalent situation to ask Keshi and his assistants to go while giving room to another set with different sense of approach to tinker the team for the next two matches.
Nigerians won’t forgive the present board of the NFF if the Eagles are unable to defend the trophy won last year at Morocco 2015 and all efforts must be geared towards ensuring that Nigeria defeat Congo in Brazzaville and also beat South Africa comfortably in Uyo next month to ensure that a ticket to Morocco is assured.

BOBBY WOMACK DIES AT 70

Legendary soul singer and songwriter Bobby Womack, who penned hits for many of the greatest musicians of the 20th Century, has died at the age of 70.
Womack was born in 1944 in Cleveland, Ohio and began singing in a gospel group in the 1950s with his brothers.
The brothers, including Cecil, Curtis, Harry and Friendly Jr, cut two R&B albums as the Valentinos.
Later the group broke up and Womack turned to song writing and a solo career.
He outlived many of the acts with whom he played and with whom he was friendly, including Jimi Hendrix and Wilson Pickett.
His songs were recorded by Janis Joplin, Wilson Pickett and many others. His friend Sam Cooke persuaded him to let the Rolling Stones record It's All Over Now.

"He said, 'One day you'll be part of history, this group is gonna be huge,'" Womack told BBC Newsnight in 2012. "I said, 'Why don't they get their own songs?'"
He also worked as a session guitarist, appearing on recordings by Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Dusty Springfield, and Pickett.
From 1970-90, Womack charted 36 singles including That's the Way I Feel About Cha and Woman's Gotta Have It.
A series of personal tragedies including the deaths of two sons led him to drug abuse, according to the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame.
