Eagles must correct mistakes – Kanu

Former Eagles star Nwankwo Kanu has urged Coach Stephen Keshi to correct the mistakes in his squad ahead of next month’s 2014 World Cup play-off match against Ethiopia at the U.J Esuene Stadium, Calabar.


The Super Eagles left themselves in the driving seat to earn one of the five African tickets to next year’s Brazil finals after beating the Walya Antelopes 2-1 I Addis Ababa.

While praising the African champions, the former Arsenal striker said it was important for the team to checkmate the lapses if they must qualify for the finals in style.

“I have to congratulate (Stephen) Keshi and the team. In the first half we were not in the game, but in the second half we showed that we wanted it more.

“Well done to Emenike. He was my man of the match. We are halfway to Brazil. Let’s go home and correct our mistakes and fight more and God will see us through”, added Kanu.
