Nations Cup: Owumi hails Eagles provisional list

By Eddie Akalonu

Former xchairman of the Nigeria Premier League, Davidson Owumi has said the list of players picked by coach Stephen Keshi for the African Cup of Nations in South Africa remains the best the country has as he also advised certain unnamed vociferous players’ agents advocating the inclusion of  some other players to leave Keshi alone.

Speaking to Saturday Vanguard Sports, Owumi said “ Keshi I believe is the man wearing the shoes. He alone knows the calibre of players who can conveniently go to South Africa and do the country proud. To me he has chosen the best around no matter what anyone else thinks, that is our team for the Nations Cup in South Africa.

We know there are 150 million Nigerians who are not qualified coaches but who agitate for inclusion of one or two strikers and players not named. I think they should leave Keshi alone to do his work,” he stated.
