WorldStage Newsonline-- Super Eagles boss, Stephen Keshi, has unveiled an ambitious programme aimed at ensuring that the national team, scores plenty goals not only against Namibia, but against any foe in the qualifiers for the Nations Cup 2012 and the World Cup 2014.
For Keshi, no matter how pretty team plays, goalscoring abilities remain the ultimate decider of matches hence his advice to Eagles strikers not only to be aggressive in front of goal but to ensure that they are 70 per cent on target at all times.
“In our time, matches against teams like Namibia are not discussed in terms of whether we will win but how many goals we will score and that is what I want us to return to in the new Super Eagles”, he told the players on Monday morning.
His training was also targeted at getting goals, as he said the Namibians, who have been training in Germany for the qualifier must not be underrated. “They say we are the super power and Namibians are minnows, those are only words, and until we show it on the pitch we will just be living in a fool’s paradise”.
The Super Eagles train twice daily at 7:30 am and 3:30 pm inside the UNICAL Sports Ground. That will continue until the team moves to the UJ Esuene Stadium on Thursday, to perfect strategies against Namibia.
