The former coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi has said he wasn’t sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation.  He spoke at the Kwara State stadium during the ultimate of the 28th edition of the All Financial Institutions Football competition.  The NFF announced Keshi’s sacking on Thursday with Shaibu Amodu as his replacement.

Keshi also stated that the Eagles can still qualify for the African Cup of Nations, adding that the team only needed seriously to work hard. He urged Nigerians to encourage the team.


“I was never sacked by the NFF. It’s if you have an existing contract that you would be sacked. Super Eagles can still qualify for the 2015 AFCON. They have the chance, because the group is still open. They only need to work harder.

“We need a lot of encouragement from Nigerians for the players to go ahead and qualify. I think we can qualify for the 2015 AFCON,” he said.
