Super Eagles' Coach, Stephen Keshi, has emphatically revealed why his wards should test strength against Egypt's national side, popularly known as Pharaohs.

The Eagles' head coach who is holidaying in the United States of America (USA) called to inform his players on the importance of playing the proposed friendly.

Before the call dropped in, Amokachi had addressed the team on behalf of Keshi on the task ahead and the rebuilding process of the national team.

When Keshi's call came, the entire team was attentive, as the former Togo and Mali national team's coach took time off to reel out the names of practically all the players, technical and backroom staff, enquiring about their well-being, camp situation and the need to be disciplined even when he is not physically present.

'As you all are aware, I'm away on a short visit to my family, but I must confess that I'm there in camp with you in spirit and you know how we do our thing in camp, we must keep it tight and work together as a team, so that we can achieve our set goals easily', he blared.

'Hope my doctors are around and all the backroom staff (he reeled out names, what of  the tallest man in the team (Ejike Uzoenyi), and other players (he again called names of players).

By this time, the dinning hall was so animated that you could practically feel Keshi's presence in the hall, that forced Amokachi to tell the former Super Eagles skipper, that he would have told him that he wanted to speak to everybody one after the other.

Concluding his phone conference address, Keshi said: 'We all know we have a very important friendly against seven times African champions; Egypt, we must take our training serious and ensure that we give a good account of ourselves in that game. I'll soon be with you to finalise training. Lets keep the flag flying.
