Godfrey Oboabona

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi says he is happy with his first look at Godfrey Oboabona and does not envisage any additional training to get the defender in top shape to face Ethiopia this weekend.

Oboabona has only played one competitive game since joining Turkish club Rizespor in the summer, but Keshi says he is confident the player is in good shape for the weekend.

“We saw him train yesterday and his intensity matched the other players,” Keshi told KickOffNigeria.com. “He is a quality player, we spoke about the situation yesterday and he assured me that he has played and will be ready.

“There is no need to give him any extra training, and we have three of four days to train until Saturday so he should be in good shape by then.”

Nigeria’s first day of training on Tuesday was intense, and Keshi was pleased by the effort “That is the only way we can survive in that weather condition.

I like the fight and intensity shown by the players. If we can keep that up in Ethiopia, we will get a good result.

“We are training at a time when it’s hot; the weather is a bit thin and humid so it is as close as possible to what we will get there.

“But these players know what is at stake and I don’t have to spell it out to them.

“We want to qualify for the World Cup, and we want to go to Ethiopia and get the kind of result that will aid us in that.”
