Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi, who is believed to have stayed back in Lagos to offer special prayers at a popular church, has demanded his team show they are champions of Africa against South Africa today.

Congo upset the Super Eagles 3-2 in Calabar at the weekend and an official statement reported Keshi stayed back in Nigeria to ?attend to personal issues?, but sources close to the coach said he did not fly out with the squad on Sunday so as to offer special prayers for his team.

Keshi, who finally rejoined the Eagles in Cape Town Tuesday morning, has now demanded they show they are African Champions when they tackle Bafana Bafana in an AFCON 2015 qualifier, a game he said is as important as a World Cup final.

?We are the champions of Africa and we must start showing that not only against Bafana Bafana, but in all our remaining games,? Keshi charged.

The team?s stand-in captain, Austin Ejide said they will fight to qualify for Morocco 2015 despite a losing start.

?There are no easy games again, but we have our backs to the wall now and we must do what we have to do to move on in the chase to qualify for the Nations Cup,? said the Israel-based goalkeeper.
