The Super Eagles have taken two points from six matches in their last two
"Their coach is their biggest weapon because he's well experienced, he knows the game well," Keshi told Fifa.com

And Keshi is relying on them to guide his young squad.
"You can't buy this sort of experience. I pray that Enyeama, Yobo and Obi Mikel will bring all their experience. Youth is good, but if we can combine youth and experience that will be great."
They are one of the few unknown quantities in the competition with 14 of their 23-man squad still playing in their domestic league. But they excelled in qualifying and topped a group.
