Nigerians who debuted under Keshi.

Kenneth Omeruo: Perhaps the single greatest success story of Keshi’s time in charge of the national side, the Big Boss handed Omeruo a surprise invitation to the 2013 Afcon squad—even though the youngster only made his debut in a friendly weeks before the start of the tournament—and threw the wonderkid in at the deep end when Joseph Yobo was ruled out. The defender, who improved steadily under Keshi’s tutelage and already has 33 caps, looks set for a long international career

Victor Moses: For a time it looked as thought Nigeria might ‘lose’ Victor Moses to England, but the forward eventually decided to throw his hat into the ring with the Super Eagles after discussions with both Nwankwo Kanu and Jay-Jay Okocha. He made his debut against Namibia in a World Cup qualifier in June 2012—after his attempts were thwarted before Keshi’s reign in 2011—and would play a key role for the Eagles at the 2013 Cup of Nations.
