Keshi’s Life As A Legend - Key Moments




Above is the pictures of the key moments in Stephen Keshi's life, Stephen Keshi was one man who
achieved a number of feats in his
lifetime that are extremely noteworthy.
His foray into the African football circle
earned him many accolades and
endeared him to numerous people both
within and outside of the country. A lot
of people do not even remember how
incredible this great man was so we
decided to shine some light on three
times Keshi earned and cemented the
title of legend, something he truly was.


•1. Clinching the 1994 Nations Cup
trophy
Keshi captained the Super Eagles team,
which had the likes of Sunday Oliseh,
Austin Eguavoen, Samson Siasia,
Daniel Amokachi, Rashidi Yekini and JJ
Okocha as members. They went on to
win the popular 1994 nations cup,
something that warmed the hearts of
Nigerians far and wide and renewed our
patriotism.One would recall that, before
then, Nigeria hadn't won the trophy
since 1980 when the Green Eagles won
the nation's first ever continental
trophy.


•2). Helping Togo qualify for the
World Cup
While coaching the Togolese national
team, Keshi helped qualify a relatively
unknown and untested team for the
country's first ever world cup
appearance in 2006.
He achieved this from a qualification
group that had heavy African titans
like Senegal and Mali.


•3). Keshi won Nigeria her
3rd Nations Cup Trophy
On February 13,2013, Stephen Keshi,
while spearheading the affairs of the
Nigerian national team, steered the
country to win its third nations cup
trophy ever. Achieving this made
him the second person apart from
Mahmoud El- Gohary, to win the trophy
as a player and a coach.
Other notable feats by Keshi include:
Being the longest reigning captain of
the national team. He captained the
team for 13 years from 1981-1994.
He was the second black coach to win
the Africa Cup of Nations since YEO
Martial won it for Cote d'Ivoire in the
year 1992.

Keshi was a superb tactician and
national treasure. He will forever be
remembered.
