Coach Stephen Keshi says Nigeria will still qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations

Coach Stephen Keshi

Super Eagles caretaker coach, Stephen Keshi is confident that Nigeria will still qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco, even though Nigeria lie bottom of Group A in the 2015 AFCON qualifiers with just one point after three matches.

Keshi insists that the current problems with the team has nothing to do with his tactical prowess. He stated this yesterday after receiving the prestigious LEADERSHIP Sports Person of the year award for 2013.

Represented by his brother and manager, Emmanuel Ado, Keshi said the recent crisis concerning elections into the executive committee of the NFF are part of the factors affecting the performance of the team.

"It is unfortunate that each time we have elections, it never worked out well and robs off negatively on the team. What is affecting the team now are man-made factors. We don't want to talk too much as if we are giving excuses, but I will give an instance. When he came in he did three Christmases and new years in camp; and in every match two or three weeks to the game the home based players come to camp and work very hard with the coach assessing their level of fitness and work on them before the match, but now the story is different. All we want to say for now is that Nigeria will qualify for the AFCON 2015 in Morocco," he said.
