Being aware primarily of the lack of for time his men to contest satisfactory number of friendlies, Keshi tried hard to make them dispute a victorious 4-1 friendly against Prisons FC of Abuja before setting an appointment with Niger Tornadoes tomorrow (Wednesday).

A high class soccer game against Lobi Stars on Saturday will be the third friendly fixture.
