Following yesterday’s Super Eagles’ 2-3 loss to Congo in the first leg qualifier for 2015 African Cup of Nations (AFCON), head coach Stephen Keshi said he could foresee the outcome before the match end.

After the unsuccessful first game in Calabar, Nigeria now occupies the 3rd place in Group A, behind South Africa and Congo but ahead of Sudan, Punch recalls.
Interestingly, the Eagles’ players had previously expressed their confidence in their victory, with CSKA Moscow Striker Ahmed Musa saying: “We already know ourselves and we know that we will win on Saturday.”

However, the opposite occurred. Commenting on the outcome and on the strategy of the game, Stephen Keshi stated:
“I’m very disappointed. It was not just the result but the way we played in the first half.
I was like a soothsayer because I saw it coming and I talked to the boys that they had to be aggressive and first to the ball. I’ve played against the Congolese team before and I know they play tip-tap football. We scored the first goal and that was it. It’s a shame that we had opportunities, mostly in the second half, but we could not score.”
