Relaxed Keshi ready for Iran test

Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi says the results in the friendly games leading up to the World Cup don't concern him.

The Big Boss was speaking in a question and answer session via the internet with fans and journalists.

Nigeria drew with Scotland and Greece and lost to the United States in their last warm-up match.

"The friendly matches are to see progression from game one to three and give us a chance to correct ourselves," said Keshi.

Keshi appeared relaxed and in jovial mood as he also confirmed the clean bill of health the camp now had after a spate of injuries.

"You always have one or two knocks but at the moment there are no major injury problems."

Keshi was somewhat coy when asked how much he knew about Iran. Instead he preferred to give kudos to Iranian coach Carlos Queiroz.

"Iran and Japan qualified early. They have seasoned coach who will want to impart all his knowledge from clubs like Manchester United into the team."

Like most fans Keshi has enjoyed the opening four days of the tournament.

"Each game has it's own spirit but it's and open tournament and so far I'm loving it. We've seen a few surprises but that's what a tournament should look like."
