Nigeria offering Keshi new contract a symbol of federation's stabilisation

Stephen Keshi's new contract is the first step toward stabilising Nigeria's football programme.

Jay-Jay Okocha has urged African football to think big as it continues to challenge for higher honours in the global game and more efficient structures on the continent. In a wide-ranging interview with FIFA.com ahead of last week's Match Against Poverty, Okocha asked African teams to aim high at World Cups by believing they can break the barrier into the final four, where no African team has gone before, and beyond.

Neymar, Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Arturo Vidal were all on display in north London, but the game's biggest names could only show glimpses of their attacking best and it was left to substitute Firmino to find the decisive goal in the 73 minute.

Since last year's humiliating exit at their home World Cup, Brazil have now recorded eight...

Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, federation president Carlos Chavez specifically mentioned extremist group Boko Haram as a concern.

In response, Nigeria said Bolivia "chickened out" and that their "excuses" for calling off the friendly this month "do not hold any water."
