Super Eagles Head Coach, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi has extended a hand of fellowship to the National Deaf and Dumb team which is currently preparing for a tourney abroad with the donation of a hefty set of boots and shin guards to the team.
The donation was made after the national team’s training session at the FIFA Goal Project site, where the other team has also been training daily, sometimes keeping the national team to wait on them to resume training.
Keshi said the donation was to encourage the team to excel at the forthcoming tournament as he has been very impressed with the way and manner the team has been going about their preparation for their tournament.
Coach Peter, who received the donation on behalf of the team, thanked the national team coach for the gesture and promised that the team will do its best to give a good account of itself at the tourney that it was heading for outside the country. Efforts to get details of the team’s trip abroad and their schedule were not successful as Coach Peter, who is also a special sports coach did not reply to enquiries about the team’s movement.
