Google marks Stephen Keshi’s 56th Birthday



It was all tears when Nigeria’s National team coach Stephen Keshi died on 7th June 2016. But live moves on. Today marks his 56th birthday and in memorial of him search engine made a doodle of him.

According to Wiki, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi was a Nigerian football defender and manager. During his playing career, Stephen earned 60 caps for the Nigerian national football team, making him the nation’s second-most capped player at the time of his retirement. As a manager, Keshi achieved success by qualifying Togo for the only FIFA World Cup appearance in its history in 2006.[4] However, he left the position prior to the tournament and was replaced by Otto Pfister. He later coached his native Nigeria, where he became one of only two people, along with Egypt’s Mahmoud El-Gohary, to have won the Africa Cup of Nations as both a player and a coach.
