Super Eagles Chief Coach, Stephen Keshi has expressed his worries over the inability of his two star players to get regular playing time in their clubs. Victor Moses and John Mikel Obi have found playing time a rare commodity this season in Liverpool and Chelsea respectively. This, Keshi said he wished was different but he has no control over.

He said "It is unfortunate but they are good players. They are not kids I need to teach how to play, all I need is to bring in the unity and understanding into the team. I think they are in good shape and the team still needs them". It is indeed not the perfect situation but hey, Hernandez is not playing for Manchester United either. Let's hope they are sharp by the time they get to Brazil.
