NFF Goes Into Prayer Before The Final Squad For 2014 World Cup Is Announced

The first vice-president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has revealed that the football body is in prayer mode ahead of the announcement of the final squad for the 2014 World Cup by coach Stephen Keshi.

A few NFF officials are keen for the Big Boss to pick Ikechukwu Uche and Peter Odemwingie, who have hit a fine patch of form, but Keshi has been given a free rein to select his teams so far.

“The Technical Department of the Nigeria Football Federation is made up of technocrats and should be able to liaise with Stephen Keshi to come out with the best squad for Nigeria,” Umeh told Goal during Thursday’s unveiling of the new national team jerseys.

“So [the NFF] prays that let God give [Keshi] the wisdom to get the best players for the World Cup in Brazil.”

Umeh also charged the Super Eagles to put up a fine display at the World Cup, as a lot of investment has been made in the team.

“Our people say to whom much is given, much is expected. We expect our Super Eagles to reciprocate these kind gestures from the Nigeria Football Federation.

“Our prayer is first to have the day in our international friendly against Mexico. This anticipated victory will help to boost the morale of the players and we will have some confidence that we are going to do well in the 2014 World Cup.

“We hope that the new kits would inspire the team and spur them to do well in the World Cup,” Umeh said.

Guus Hiddink To Take Over As Hollands Coach After The 2014 World Cup In Brazil

Guus Hiddink has claimed that he will take over as coach of Holland after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Russia coach, previously handled the Dutch national team between 1994 and 1998. The 67-year-old has been out of work since last year, after he left Anzhi Makhachkala and has been acting as an advisor at PSV.

“I am working with the KNVB [Dutch football association] to create a coaching team around me. We will need a few days or maybe a couple of weeks,” he told NOS.

“It will be a great team. I will not be a free-wheeling coach. When I do something, I want to do it as well as I can. Otherwise I would not do it.”

Hiddink is expected to be assisted by Jaap Stam, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Giovanni van Bronckhorst.
