In many ways we all say this one coming. Stephen Keshi, the coach of the super eagles has been sacked by the NFF with Amodu Shuaibu to take over from him for the final 2 games of the African Nations Cup qualifier.
This comes just after the super eagles won a qualifying game against Sudan, 3-1 in Abuja. Prior to that, Nigeria had struggled in the qualifying stages losing to Congo, and Sudan, and earning a draw in South Africa in their first 3 games. A total of 1 out of 9 points during that stretch.

Nigerians have been divided over the performance of the coach with some thinking he deserves to stay on, and others believing he’s tactically not on par with the world class coaches. But after winning the nations cup, and getting to the round of 16 in the World Cup, it’s hard to argue against his achievements.
