The African Champions were close to losing the game until Nnamdi Oduamadi came to the rescue in the 90th minute.


Addressing the players and officials immediately after the encounter, Keshi said he was impressed by the players’ output but noted that the Kenyans came with a match plan to frustrate the Eagles.

-From the airport in Lagos they were complaining and they came to Calabar with the same attitude, but we still held our own against them.

-Being champions is not an easy thing and I think we now know how to play like champions when next we meet them in Nairobi.

Resolute desire

The former Togo and Mali Coach congratulated the players for the resolute desire not to lose the game in Calabar and called for more Kenya.
