Eagles will fly over France, says Keshi

Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi has declared that his team has no option than to win against France when they clash in the round of 16 on Monday.

Super EAgles - Eagles will fly over France, says KeshiThough the Eagles are the underdogs, Keshi stated before they left Campinas for Brasilia that his team’s mentality is strong and for them, it has always been nothing but a win each time they are out to play a game.

“I said before the tournament that our mentality must be strong. Our approach to every match has always been the same: to win.

“Whether we are playing against Spain at the FIFA Confederations Cup or playing against Liberia in a friendly match, I always tell the boys that victory is non–negotiable.

“For us, we will go into Monday’s match aiming to win. But as I also said before the competition, we take it one match at a time.

“We don’t even want to think of who might be lurking in the quarter finals if we win; we are not bothered. All we know is that we must win on Monday.”

France top group E with seven points and they have played some excellent football unlike in 2010 where they were dumped in the preliminaries. With their arrays of stars in all departments they have left no one in doubt that they are candidates for the trophy.

    The taste of the pudding is in the eating. Although the super eagles are qualified to play in the win or go home round on Monday, I feel like they have not fully utilize their talents in the last few games they won, drew or lost. The Eagles that won the gold medal in Georgia Olympic of 1996, should be revisited. That match was breath taking throughout the duration of the game and the Eagles prevailed against the three top notch footballers of the world. With the current display of key talents featured in this current world cup competition, if they played France, the same way they played Argentina, we might be in for a high jump.
