2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa: Keshi may equal Egypt’s El Gohary record.
With his team now in the final of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, Nigeria’s head coach Stephen Keshi is on the verge of entering the record books.
Should the Super Eagles win the ongoing tournament on Sunday, Keshi will be the second man in history to win the cup both as a player and then as a coach.
The Egyptian, who died three months ago of brain stroke in Jordan, won the African Nations Cup as a player in 1959 and then coached the victorious Egyptian team at Burkina Faso 1998.
Keshi, though suffering from injury at the 1994 African Nations Cup, led Nigeria to victory and may achieve the same feat in another capacity on Sunday.
He has already said he is delighted to be inching into record books.
Nigeria is due to play Burkina Faso in the final of the 2013 tournament in Johannesburg on Sunday.
