CHAN 2014: Keshi: Morocco is the past, Ghana now

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has said his team must put behind a sensational comeback against Morocco to beat Ghana and reach the CHAN final. 

The Eagles fought back from three goals down to beat Morocco 4-3 and set up a tantalising semi-final clash against perennial rivals Ghana on Wednesday.

“I need to make the boys get back to their feet because for them coming from three goals down to win against Morocco, I need to get that out of their head and focus on the Ghana game,” Keshi said in Bloemfontein.

The high-scoring Nigeria will be without striker Gbolahan Salami, Benjamin Francis and Ikenna Paul, but Keshi said he is looking forward to a cracking clash against one of his team’s age-long rivals.

“I hope that all the fans would have a good day because when Nigeria and Ghana play, everybody wants to watch and because we are brothers and play similar football, the expectation is very high,” he said.

“You know what since my playing days any team that wants to play Nigeria takes it like a World Cup final. But sincerely Ghana is a good team, we must respect them.”

Skipper Chigozie Agbim said the Eagles are fired up for more exploits because that could enhance their chances of making the final squad to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

“Playing in the World Cup is the biggest achievement any player can have and knowing that playing in CHAN would better our chances of making the team, it’s a wonderful motivation,” said the Enugu Rangers shot stopper, who will be hoping for his first clean sheet after he let in eight goals thus far.
