I won’t overhaul Eagles – Keshi

Stephen Keshi has declared that he has no plans of carrying out a total overhauling on the playing personnel of the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

The Nigerian head coach said after his side’s 2-0 win over the Copper Bullets of Zambia that he would only strengthen the team where there is need for such.

“I did not say I would overhaul the team. But where changes are needed, we will make them,” said the 49-year-old coach.

Keshi particularly referred to Tuesday’s friendly in which the Zambians were the more impressive side.

He pointed out a dearth of midfielders in the Super Eagles following their performance against Zambia.

“I had like 10 strikers today and I was looking for midfielders to play but I couldn’t find them.

“I can’t put a striker on as a midfielder. I need to have the numbers of players in every department that will allow me change players if one is not doping well.

“Today (Tuesday) I could not do it. I was trying to juggle with it I won’t overhaul the team, but I will make sure that for every 18 or 25 we get to camp, there are twins in every position,” he said.

Keshi got his first win since resuming as Super Eagles’ head coach when his side beat Zambia two-nil in Kaduna.

The Uche brothers, Kalu and Ikechukwu scored the goals
