KESHI BACKS FALCONETS TO WIN JAPAN 2012
Posted: Aug 31, 2012
Super Falconets' splendid run at the ongoing Japan 2012 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup has not gone unnoticed in the camp of the Super Eagles, as coach Stephen Keshi and his crew have kept a close tab on events in the Asian country with hopes of a final Nigerian triumph.
Keshi declared after the Falconets' quarterfinal victory over Mexico on Thursday morning that he foresees the team going all the way and bringing the World Cup trophy to Nigeria at the end of the championship.
“We supported them while they were here as our daughters and we hope and pray that they will win the trophy which they narrowly lost to Germany at the last championship. So that it will help boost our morale ahead of the Nations Cup qualifier in Monrovia and also the World Cup qualifiers that come up later,” Keshi was quoted as saying by Eagles spokesman, Ben Alaiya.
During Thursday's rigorous training, the Eagles technical crew had kept on monitoring events in Japan and when training ended at about 9am local time, Keshi and his first assistant, Dan 'The Bull' Amokachi, quickly enquired what the result was. They were not too happy when they were told that it was still a goalless affair and the game had gone into extra time. “It's tough, but I know Nigeria will win,”Keshi enthused.
