We are still rebuilding - Keshi



Despite winning the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, Nigeria head coach, Stephen Keshi has insisted that his team are still work in progress.

Nigeria's Super Eagles clinched a third African title at the expense of their Burkinabe counterparts, the Stallions, on Sunday night.

Though Keshi stopped to give his players the plaudits but he made it clear that the Super Eagles will "continue to work hard."

He added that winning the African title is for Nigeria and local coaches in his nation.

"We have not arrived yet because we are still in building process. Yes, I scream at the players, but they have been good here, and we will continue to work hard because the hard work starts now.

"Winning the trophy is mainly for my nation. My dream has always been to make Nigerians happy. I dedicate this to Nigerian coaches. Like I said we are not there yet," said Keshi.

The triumph was Nigeria's first African title in 19 years.
