Nigeria have been extremely poor in the last five matches, which has raised the concern ahead of the 2013 African cup of nations.
The manager once again saw his team put an extremely disappointing performance in the recent match against Cape Verde. Nigeria were playing against Cape Verde in the second of the friendly match ahead of the African cup of nations. After failing to assert any major advantage over the minnows, Nigeria only managed a 0-0 draw. The manager Stephen Keshi lambasted his players by saying that it was not good enough.
