Super Eagles Failed in Khartoum As Sudan Compounds Keshi’s Problem

Coach Stephen Keshi


There are strong indications that the days of Africa’s best coach, Stephen Keshi as Super Eagles’ manager are numbered after Sudan compounded Nigeria’s woes with a 1-0 victory over the African Champions on Saturday.

The game was a must-win for the visitors prior to their trip to Sudan and bookmakers had tipped Nigeria to recover from a slow start to the group games and at least get a win to boost their chances of qualifying for the African Nations Cup finals in Morocco next year.

The Al Hilal striker’s powerful header from inside the box completely beat goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama for the only goal of the encounter.

Elsewhere in group A, Bafana-Bafana of South Africa moved to the top of the group, thanks to a convincing 2-0 win in faraway Congo.

Nigeria now occupy the last position in the group as Sudan leapfrogged the Super Eagles into third place with their first win of the qualifying series.

Nigeria hosts Sudan in their next game of the qualifiers this week, while Congo will hope to regain the top position when they visit South Africa.
