Nigeria recently brought back Stephen Keshi for yet another spell in charge of the national team.
He watched his team manage a convincing 2-0 win over Chad in a qualification match for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations. Nigeria won the tournament under the regime of Keshi.

Since his return to lead the team following a disappointing Africa Cup of Nations, Nigeria have set the target of reclaiming the title once again.
The Nigerian national side was eliminated from the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations after losing against South Africa and even with the recent managerial change that is going on involving Stephen Keshi, this has not stopped the nation in any way as an interim manager in the form of Daniel AMokashi was named and the Nigerian has a number of matches expected to play within the upcoming weeks.
