WorldStage newsonline-- Super Eagles boss, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi, returned to the country at the weekend beaming with confidence about the potentials of his team ahead Nations and World Cups qualifiers.

He however made a passionate plea to the Nigerian public and the media, saying, “please let me work and help rediscover Nigerian football, because too much talk is not good for what we are trying to do in the national team.”

Keshi said he had talked so much of recent that there was need to let him have a break as “now is the time to start working seriously for the rediscovery of the national team.

He also appealed to those who may not like his face to stop constantly using him as being confrontational with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

“We don’t always have issues that I read about in the media but now, I have returned and want to work, I think we should be given space to work and do it well in the rebuilding process of the national team. Or how can somebody say I have rejected a camping site that have not even been mentioned to me by my employers,” he said.

On whether he had made new discoveries in his over a month sojourn in the United States, Keshi said he would prefer to keep his tabs close to his chest, but assured that Nigeria had the ability not only to qualify for the Nations Cup and the World Cup but to make a great impact at both events.
