Former Nigeria international Tijani Babangida believes that Stephen Keshi will do better with the Super Eagles this time.
The former Ajax Amsterdam winger admits Keshi made some mistakes before, but says he’s sure the 53-year old must have learnt from those mistakes, adding that Keshi will build on that plus his successes to move the Super Eagles forward.
“He made mistakes in the past and I’m sure he’s learned from them and now we must move forward,” he said.
“He also won us the Africa Cup of Nations so he can build on that too. But overall I think he should do better.
“It was unfortunate what happened last year but this is football and you win some and lose some. Nobody wins every time and we must understand this,” he told SL10.
Keshi is expected to begin work on the 18th of this month, when the Super Eagles camp opens for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Le Sao of Chad.
The camp will be opened with home-based players, before they are joined by their overseas based teammates 3-4 days to the game.
The NFF few days ago confirmed that the match will now be played at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna.
