AFCON 2013 Final: Keshi Leaves Emenike And Moses Out Of Training

Super Eagles chief coach Stephen Keshi has left out the striking pair of Emmanuel Emenike and Victor Moses from the team’s training session ahead of Sunday’s final against Burkina Faso.

Keshi has decided to take precaution on the two key players after they suffered knocks in their 4-1 semi-final win over Mali on Wednesday.

Reports has it that the team doctor, Ibrahim Gyaran, advised the technical crew to excuse the duo from today’s training to allow them undergo tests.

Emenike is expected to resume training with the rest of the squad by Friday while Moses will have to wait for a scan to know the extent of his injury.

The Super Eagles are expected to meet the Stallions of Burkina Faso in the final match of the 2013 African Cup of Nations on Sunday at Soccer City in South Africa.

Meanwhile, the coach has called for caution from Nigerian fans, saying his team is still far from greatness, though the potential is there for all to see after the team reached their first Africa Cup of Nations final in 13 years on Wednesday.

Keshi was also pleased that his plan to leave out several senior players from the current side had gone well.

The former Togo and Mali handler was a player the last time Nigeria won the trophy back in 1994, captaining a team that included future stars like Daniel Amokachi, Jay-Jay Okocha, Sunday Oliseh, and Finidi George.

He is bidding to become the second man to win the continental showpiece as a player and coach after Egyptian Mahmoud el-Gohary.

    The Super Eagles should bear in mind that Burkina Faso players are too physical in their tackling. They would device a strategy to injure super eagles’ key player from the field. However, the super eagles could utilise the hard tackling attitude of their opponent to win penalties in the 18-yard box if they handle it well. I advise the super eagles who played excellently against Mali to be more serious minded and result oriented in sunday final match. Good luck to Nigeria.
