Nigeria's Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi turns 50


Head Coach of Nigeria's senior football team, Stephen Keshi marked his Golden jubilee with the team on Thursday night.

He actually hit his 50th birthday in late January but the former international said he felt duty bound to celebrate it with the team because of the joy they have brought him.

The mini-party took place at the Eagles' camp, Bolton White Apartment in Wuse Zone 7 of the nation's capital.

"My wife and children had expected that we will mark my golden jubilee together but national duty calls and here I am. I could not also mark it on the day it fell on because the team was not in camp and I was also away from the country. So this is an opportunity to say a big thank you to God and to the Super Eagles for attaining the golden age", he said.

Demands victory

Keshi demands victories against Liberia and Rwanda as a birthday gift from the National team.

"This is the national team of Nigeria and I'm honoured to be the Head Coach, the best birthday gift I demand from you is to always win the matches we have ahead of us and I can assure you money will surely come."

He added that; " There are millionaires and billionaires out there expecting victory from you, so that they can bless you with their money. Lets make Nigerians happy again by winning all our games and get blessed".
