 Out-of-Contract Super Eagles Coach Stephen Keshi has reacted to criticisms about his selection policy and style, saying he?s open to inviting ?fresh faces, if he sees them.

The former Hawks of Togo Coach has come under intense scrutiny and criticism lately about his invitation policy and how certain players are always left out of the national side. But the ?Big Boss? as he?s fondly called has defended himself saying he?s very much open to inviting new players to the team as is being craved for, only if he spots them.
He says:?If I see fresh faces that are good and can bring something tangible to the team, why not, I will invite them.
?It?s their country, they are entitled to play for Nigeria, so why not. If I see and they are willing to play for Nigeria, why not, I will,? he said on Brila FM.
Former footballers have been calling for a change in how players are called to the Super Eagles, with some seeing it as a ?closed circuit? where a particular group are always invited irrespective of how they fare at their clubs, even when they hardly get games.
The latest of the former footballers is Garba Lawal, a former Super Eagles midfielder who said ?It is obvious that we need fresh players in the team because whatever the coach is doing is not going right at the moment.
?As a coach you need to change, a positive change. But he keeps insisting but for how long,?
A list of invited players for October?s double header AFCON 2015 qualifiers against Sudan is expect out at any moment and Nigerians surely are expectant to see if some ?fresh faces? will be called up, most notably Kelechi Iheanacho and IK Uche.
