I will quit if Eagles fail – Steven Keshi

Shortly after the visit of President Goodluck Jonathan to
the Super Eagles’ camp in Abuja, ahead of their qualifying game against
Liberia, the Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, has said he will quit
his job if he fails to qualify the country to next year’s Africa Cup of

 It will be recalled the Eagles failed to qualify for the 2012 Nations
Cup and coach Samson Siasia was sacked as a result when he failed to
resign. However, Keshi has vowed he will not be asked to go should his
team again fail at the last hurdle to reach the Nations Cup tournament
proper. According to him, “If I fail, I won’t wait to be asked to go. I
will throw in the towel and move on.

“But God forbid that we get to a stage where we do not qualify. My
boys are focused and I am sure they also want to be in South Africa
after they failed to get to the last competition in Gabon and Equatorial
Guinea… But football can be unpredictable and that is why we have to
redouble our efforts to ensure we qualify.”
