Fresh report by Vanguard says the Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi and captain Joseph Yobo have quit the team.
Speaking after the loss to France in the second round of 2014 FIFA World Cup, the Eagles’ Big Boss said it was time for him to move on after leading the team to the victory at 2013 AFCON and reaching the play-off of the 2014 Mundial.

"I have to go back to my family and face fresh challenges."

Yobo, who has celebrated his 100th cap as part of the national team exactly during this world tournament, announced his leave explaining he had done everything he could for the Eagles:

"I think I should give the younger ones the opportunity to forge ahead. I have nothing new to offer."

Interestingly, the immediate reports after the Nigeria vs France match said that when Keshi was asked about his future plans in the Nigerian team, he replied he didn’t know whether he would stay or not.
