Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi, has asked the boys to concentrate on coming games and forget about the past match played against Burkina Faso.
After the 1-1 draw the Eagles played against Burkina Faso, many of the players heaped the blame on the draw on Ahmed Musa and Ike Uche, whom they accused of wasting goal scoring opportunities. Burkina Faso equalised in the last minute of the match after Emenike had put the Eagles up in the first half.
Keshi intervened saying “that match is gone now. Stop complaining, you all did well nobody wished for a draw.”
“All I want you to do now is to focus and concentrate on friday match against Zambia on Friday, its a must win match because the task and the matches ahead is bigger that complains,” he said.
Nigeria will play against the defending champions, Zambia, on Friday in a game that could decide the Eagles chance of progressing to the next round.
