SUPER Eagles head coach,Stephen Keshi, says going by its progression in the past one year, Nigeria is capable of winning the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Looking beyond Saturday’s World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia, Keshi told journalists shortly before Wednesday’s training session that, “the Super Eagles can win the Brazil 2014 World Cup.

Why not? My brother it is possible, anything is possible in football.”

He believes his team will beat Ethiopia in
Calabar, saying everyone in the team is fully prepared for the final crucial encounter
against the Walya Antelopes.

Keshi attributed his team’s success to the
support from his players, assistant coaches
and the backroom crew, saying, “may be my
assistant coaches and I are the best
indigenous coaches in football that Nigeria
ever had.

“I have great staff. We work together. We
share ideas. It is a collective effort…not just
me. I thank God that I have this great, unique staff that I work with and of course the players because if they do not play well everything boils down to zero.”

Keshi, who described the U.J. Esuene Stadium turf as one of the best in the country,advised the managers not to rest on their oars in the area of maintenance.

“We need to constantly maintain the turf so
that it will remain as good as it was, but it still remains our best and my players are always happy to play here because the people of Calabar, the government and the fans are the best you can find in the world,” he said.

After a hectic training session, which
featured all the 24 invited players
Wednesday, the coaching crew said this
evening’s practice would be a closed session.

Team Coordinator, Emmanuel Attah, said the schedule of the team has reached the crucial bend and would be closed to fans and the media.

He added, however, that tomorrow’s session
would be open to the media.

All the three goalkeepers and 21 on field
players were in excellent shape and health as Stephen Keshi and his crew showed glimpses of what will be the probable and possible squad on Saturday.

“Gradually, we are getting to where we want
to be and by Saturday hopefully we should be among the 32 nations whose flags would be flown at the Brazil 2014 World Cup,” Keshi said.
