The Leone Stars will be up against the Super Eagles in a matchday three encounter on Friday at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin City.

The reverse fixture will take place four days later at the Siaka Stevens Stadium, Freetown.

“I want the nation to be positive about the outcome from the first leg,” Keister told CAFonline.

“The team’s rebuilding process starts now, and I’ve put together some of the best players to upset the Nigerians,” he added.

Among the weapons he intend to deplore is America’s USL Championship joint top scorer Augustus Williams who will be making his international debut, if fielded on Friday.

Another player the coach is hoping will help deliver a good result is Anderlecht striker, Mustapha Bundu.

Other possible destroyers include Former AC Millan midfielder Rodney Strasser who now plays for Turun Palloseura, Randers forward Alhaji Kamara and 32-year-old Mohamed “Medo” Kamara return to the squad.

Coach Kiester’s squad is boosted by Kei Kamara who made a U-turn on his retirement from international football.

    Team wet enyimba can beat comfortably on a good day in Aba

  • Leave them they are just backing themselves which is normal. The important thing is for our boys to stay grounded and be humble in their approach to the game but with killer instinct. If football was won on paper we would have the game in the bag but, upsets are plenty in modern game as France found out yesterday

  • Fact!!!!

    Hahahahaha….you can beat SE home and away naim you never win any match for the AFCON qualifiers so far…??? LMAO. These are the kinds of empty boasts Africans like. Unfortunately, from history, it is when a team threatens the SE like this that the SE whips them silly.
    I pity you home and away…!

  • I hope this man will be able to stand for an interview after the game tomorrow

  • hahahahaha Dr Drey just said my mind. the coach is giving us reason to even take them very serious

      Hehehehhe…the last time any coach threatened us like this was then Libya coach Adel Amrouche…..the same one Omo9ja was claiming to be better than Rohr and should replace Rohr because of his braggadocio. At the end of both legs it was 4-0 home, 2-3 away. Someone should pls pull this Kester’s (abi na jester) ears.

    The Gaffer is very funny, The Coach is just joking, he already knows what is going to happen tomorrow, He didn’t even think about the kind of natural potential players we have on ground for tomorrow and next week’s game before saying this sheet from his mouth,
    What a funny Coach.
