No foreign-based Eagles for Venezuela – Keshi
Keshi says no foreign-based player has been called up for the Super Eagles’ friendly international against Venezuela. Both nations will clash in Miami, USA on November 14 and 24, and domestically-based professionals have since been called up for the encounter.
It has been reported in some sections of the local press that Keshi has called up foreign pros like Peter Utaka and Obafemi Martins amongst others but the Nigerian trainer has dismissed the reports.
“We are working hard to bring in foreign-based players that will play the match for us but right now, we have not invited any.
I never spoke about any player. I don’t know where that is coming from,” Keshi told supersport.com.
Nigeria have met Venezuela once with the Super Eagles winning the encounter more than nine years ago, with a goal from Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha.
Keshi said this month’s game against Venezuela will be used “to try out a couple of new things.”
“We will use the opportunity to see players that we have not seen before. We are just looking to get the best players to represent Nigeria creditably against Venezuela in the USA, that’s all,” he said.
