Stephen Keshi Turns 52



Keshi, who turned 52 on Thursday, took time to express gratitude for the assistance and support he has received from different quarters since he assumed the head coach role of the Nigerian men's national team in November 2011.The former Mali and Togo manager was also full of appreciation for the surprise birthday celebration he got at the team's Green Court Hotel lodgings in Cape Town but remained focused on the clash with Morocco."I feel really good to be alive and well, and I'm happy to be here (in South Africa with the team). The atmosphere has been good and I can't thank God less for what I've achieved with this team."I'm also speechless and at the same time happy with the celebration. It's always good to feel loved and appreciated by people but I've told the team it's not party time as we can't afford to take our eyes off the ball. We are very focused on the next game (against Morocco)," Keshi said.Since becoming Nigeria's head coach, Keshi has guided the Super Eagles to win the Africa Cup of Nations and qualify for the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil.
