our sports.”

  1. Yes, and this is how we are going to do it; fire Keshi in April of 2014, hire a coach from Europe or Central America by May of same year and pay him twice what we paid Keshi; select players and campsite in June, and release the World Cup budget in July of 2014. Then, commit every Nigerian to fast and pray so that the Eagles will win the World cup in Brazil come August.

    That is what we call improvement in Nigeria!
