Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has said that he was not under any form of pressure from any quarters to excel with the national team.  

“There is nothing like pressure coming from any quarter. Tension or pressure is a natural thing in life. When you leave your house for a function you are under pressure to do it well, when  you are driving you are under pressure to get to your destination, so life itself is full of pressure of all types, but no NFF official has put me under pressure.”
He added that he was also not under any pressure to invite any player, as that will have negated the contract he entered into with the NFF. “All Nigerian players who are good enough should be rest assured that they are still members of this team, but for now, the 27 players in camp are the ones that I need, tomorrow, I may decide on new players for the next set of games.”
Keshi, praised the support he has been receiving from NFF President Aminu Maigari, noting that the Bauchi state born football administrator, has been a perfect gentleman in the manner he has piloted the affairs of the NFF. “No, he has not given me any mandate to win all the games I have because that may be impossible. But it’s my desire to win all my games, but you never can tell in a game of football,” he said.
Keshi also spoke on his relationship with NFF Technical Committee Chairman, Barrister Christopher Green, assuring that the bond is strong and united for the sake of Nigerian football.
“I’m on the same page with Barr Green and members of the Technical Committee.”
