Stephen Keshi Not Thinking About Lionel Messi NowSpeaking to reporters shortly after the Nigeria delegation arrived Sao Paulo, Super Eagles manager, Stephen Keshi says his mind is not focused on Barcelona and Argentina striker Lionel Messi.

Should the Eagles win their first two matches against Iran and Bosnia Herzegovina, the game with Argentina on June 25 might become academic.

“We have two games before thinking about Messi. We will try to do better than we did in 2010 in South Africa but we’ll see what happens when the World Cup starts.

“Let’s play on Monday and we’ll see how things go,” Stephen Keshi stressed.

In two previous encounters where Lionel Messi started, the African champions lost both, in South Africa 2010 and an exhibition game staged in  Bangabandhu National Stadium (Dhaka) three years ago.
