Why Stephen Keshi had to go as Nigeria head coach

Stephen Keshi guided Nigeria to the second round of the World Cup, but is now out of a job.
Stephen Keshi guided Nigeria to the second round of the World Cup, but is now out of a job.

It was always going to happen. Stephen Keshi's forced departure as Nigeria coach had always been a matter of when, not if.

As a matter of fact, were it not for the crisis which engulfed the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) immediately post-World Cup, where the body was split in two leading to a FIFA ban that was later lifted, the former Super Eagles captain would have been relieved of his job way earlier.

Outsiders will be taken aback at the firing of a man who delivered Nigeria the African...

Nigeria looking for answers after African Nations Cup loss to Sudan

Nigeria's John Obi Mikel, left, defends Sudan's Muhannad El Tahir on Saturday. Sudan defeated Nigeria 1-0.

The juxtaposition of the words in the expression, "The King is dead, long live the King," can come across macabre on first hearing. The first half of the phrase is about the end of a life, the second about the extension of another. It is only when you realise two different lives are being discussed that the lines unblur and succession becomes the real subject under scrutiny. After this weekend, that is what Nigerian football will be thinking about.

Their 1-0 defeat to Sudan on Saturday has left...

Road to the African Nations Cup is seldom easy

Algeria head coach Christian Gourcuff has admitted he needed more time to prepare his team for their African Cup of Nations Group B qualifying match against Ethiopia on Saturday.

African teams have begun their journeys to the next year's African Nations Cup (ANC) as the first group of away teams jetted off to their respective destinations ahead of the opening round of matches this weekend. Some travelling parties contained notable absentees, others struggled to get off the ground, and one left carrying little more than hope for a dream to come true.

Two goalkeepers are among the men missing out on the initial exchanges and one, Itumeleng Khune, could face a longer period...

The chance that will haunt Nigeria

Nigeria missed out an excellent opportunity to take the lead in the Women's U-20 World Cup final after Asisat Oshoala's header was tapped in on the goal line.

Germany won the Under-20 Women's World Cup in extra time on Sunday night, 1-0 at the expense of Nigeria.

But oh, how different it could have been.

Nigeria had the chance of all chances to put in the winning goal in the 85th minute, but were whistled for offside on a play that will haunt the nation's dreams.

Loveth Ayila gathered a rebound and shot past the German keeper. The ball was about to cross the goal line when Asisat Oshoala gave it an extra kick for good measure. 

But she was whistled...

Falconets gear up for U-20 final

Nigeria are one step away from winning the Under-20 Women's World Cup.
Nigeria are one step away from winning the Under-20 Women's World Cup.

The player who tops the goal-scoring list at the ongoing Under-20 Women's World Cup trains underneath a motorway on a dirt pitch, teaches most of her teammates the nuances of the game, and identifies herself by a hashtag #happygirlalways. Asisat Oshoala has netted seven times for Nigeria on their way to the final, including four times in the semifinals and twice in the quarterfinals to stamp her authority on a tournament that an African side has yet to win.

Oshoala learned her game in Port Harcourt,...

African football gets TV boost

Fans of the Super Eagles will now be able to watch Nigeria's ANC qualifiers.
Fans of the Super Eagles will now be able to watch Nigeria's ANC qualifiers.

The average African football fan wishes for two things: that they will be around the day a team from the continent lifts the World Cup, and that even if they never see that happen, they will at least be able to watch African teams in action from the distance of a television screen and the comfort of a couch. The latter does not seems like too much to ask, does it?

Until Thursday, it has been.

African viewers have often been deprived of the chance to watch their team in action in anything from...
