Former Nigeria coach Clemens Westerhof has tipped Stephen Keshi's team to make a big splash at the World Cup in June.
The Dutchman took the Super Eagles to their first World Cup 20 years ago and had Keshi as his captain in a side that won the Africa Cup of Nations and also reached the second round at its debut in the United States of America.
I remember listening to football commentaries on the radio while growing up. It was (and still is) hypertensive and dramatic.
The highpoints of such commentaries were the missed goal-scoring opportunities.
Nigeria’s Chinedu Obasi was on target for Schalke 04 in their 2-0 defeat of Hertha Berlin in the German topflight at the Veltins-Arena on Friday night.
His right footed shot from a difficult angle on the right to the bottom right corner courtesy of an assist from Joel Matip put his side ahead in the 16th minute of the highly entertaining encounter.
The defender who recently dropped his clutches following an injury secured in his debut match for Nigeria against Mexico also revealed that his club doctors will decide today (Friday) when he can start kicking the ball.
