Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, has slammed Villarreal’s forward Ikechukwu Uche for asking for an apology before representing the country again.
Uche was omitted from Keshi’s squad to Brazil 2014 World Cup and according to the coach, was supposed to be part of the Nations Cup preparatory team currently in Calabar, but the player wanted to be begged.
“He was supposed to be part of the team that is presently in camp but he said we must beg him first to play for Nigeria because he was left out of some competitions but I can’t beg anyone to play for Nigeria; impossible. That’s why he is not here,” Keshi said.
Nigeria will face Congo DR on Saturday in Calabar and will then travel to South Africa Tuesday to keep a date with the Bafana Bafana the next day in Cape Town.
