Coach Stephen Keshi has warned that the task of qualifying the Super Eagles for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil was not yet finished.

Nigeria on Wednesday defeated the Harambee Stars 1-0 in Nairobi, to stretch their lead in Group F to eight points, with two matches yet to play against Namibia on  June 12 in Namibia and Malawi in September.

Speaking after the match at the Arap Moi Stadium, Keshi said that he was delighted with the win but stressed that his players must not get carried away with their latest conquest.

“It was important to win this game and I am happy that the players got the three points that we came to Kenya for. It was a good result and it shows that we are learning with every other game. But the job is not yet finished.

“We still have two key games to play and it is important for us to stay focused on the target of qualifying for the World Cup. We will continue working hard to ensure that this goal is achieved”.
