Afcon spot no stroll in the park - Keshi



Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi says players that will be selected in the final squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations will have to earn their places.

Keshi revealed that only players at the peak of their powers will earn places on the Super Eagles’ plane to South Africa.

“What we want to get is a good mix of players who can help us do well at the Nations Cup, we want to win and I know we can win,” Keshi said.

‘The Big Boss’ said he would not make the mistake of selecting players based on their past reputation with the national team.

“I will always say that names don’t count in football anymore. If you are good enough, come and prove it and you will be on the plane to South Africa (for the Nations Cup).

"Objectivity is the watchword for selection of players and I promise I will stick to it,” he noted.

Nigeria is in Group C of the 2013 Afcon alongside Ethiopia, Burkina Faso and the reigning champions, Zambia.
