Coach Stephen Keshi has described as ‘shameful’,the blunder of goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama in last weekend’s 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Malawi
The match ended 1-1, with the Super Eagles taking the lead with a minute left in regulation time at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre, only to allow the Malawians equalise in added time.
“The equaliser was a shame. I thought we had the three points, but a lack of concentration gave them away,” Keshi told the BBC.
He said that the players had done a fantastic job against the hosts before the equaliser came in injury time.
“The kids have fought very hard but that’s football.”
Keshi said that his vision to build a very strong team was on course.
“I am very happy because the boys are developing, they are progressing, but it is going to take a while”, said Keshi, who plans to give other players an opportunity to prove themselves in subsequent matches.
“I still have some other players who are not here that I’m going to give an opportunity for them to come in and play – and try to build a very strong team for Nigeria.”
