Nigeria and other Group F opponents have been warned by the Argentine national team coach, Alejandro Sabella. He believes they will be intimidated by the quality of attackers at his disposal, at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil. 

He says he only has to sort his team's defence and they will be in prime shape when the World Cup kicks off in June. The South Americans are favourites to qualify and top the group, which also has Iran and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Will Argentina make good of their threat? Will there be an upset?

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.

Super Eagles Chief Coach, Stephen Keshi has said he is not bothered by the perpetual cloud of sack hanging over his head with respect to the Eagles' performance in Brazil. Keshi has come under scrutiny for his team selection, playing methods and general decisions. Some have also called him rigid and stubborn amidst calls for him to invite Osaze Odemwingie and Ike Uche.

"This is life and not everybody has to like you, so who am I to worry about everybody loving me? As long as my family loves me, I'm doing my job well and I have good health, I'm okay" were Keshi's words when he spoke to the BBC. When pressed about rumours of a foreign technical adviser, he said he can't be bothered. Does Keshi need a foreign technical adviser? Do you see Keshi getting sacked?

Super Eagles and West Brom striker, Victor Anichebe has said he's keen and ready to play for Nigeria in Brazil come June, 2014. He stated he would be glad to be part of the final squad chosen by Stephen Keshi to fly the country's flag. The 25 year old says he is feeling fit and strong to give his best to the team.

"Everybody in Nigeria and around the world knows what I'm capable of, I'm grateful the coach has said he's willing to give me a chance. If I continue to play well till the end of the season, we'll take it from there." He had some issues with the NFF over his injury sometime back while playing for the country. Do you want Anichebe in the team? Does the team need him?
