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


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.
