Super Eagles received heavy criticism following their pulsating 0-0 draw with Iran in their Group F World Cup opener on Monday.

However, coach Stephen Keshi has told anyone who cares to listen that he’ll embrace whatever result Nigeria gets against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Saturday.

The African champions need a win against Bosnia to activate any hope of progression to the knockout phase of the competition, but Keshi has reiterated he isn’t God, stressing that even the best coaches in the world can’t predict outcome of matches.

“With football, you never can tell. Whatever comes my way, I will take it,” Keshi said.

“I’m not God; I’m just a coach and I will do what I have to do and that’s it.

“Even the best coaches in the world cannot tell you they will win before the game.”

“We will try to prepare ourselves; we will work together and see what happens.”

Keshi says games at the World Cup have been unpredictable and the Eagles will have to take whatever happens at the end of 90 minutes, and he can’t promise nor guarantee anything.

“We saw the surprise from Costa Rica; we saw another surprise between Holland and Spain,” he added.
