Keshi hails "outstanding" Stephen Adams

Super Eagles head coach, Stephen Keshi has showered praises on Ghana goalkeeper Stephen Adams after his heroic performance denied Nigeria a place in the CHAN finals.

Adams made an astonishing save in the last minute of extra time to deny the eagles what would've been the match winner and he also saved in the shoot outs.

Keshi was left startled and he told the media after the match that with Adams in the post, "you are rest assured."

"I think the goalkeeper did a wonderful job and he is there to do that. He is there to save goals, he is paid to save goals. His career is to save goals so he did a wonderful job," said Keshi.

"I would love it to be at the back of the net but when you see outstanding goalkeeper like that, I think he has been doing a wonderful job throughout this tournament,"

"When you have a goalkeeper like that, you are rest assured that it can go in but it will take time before it goes in and that's what he has proved in this game. I wish him well", the reigning CAF coach of the year added.
