The circus of Nigerian football continues, as Stephen Keshi, who was fired a couple of weeks ago, has been rehired as the Super Eagles headcoach for the remaining qualifying games against Congo and South Africa next month.
Early this morning, media officer of the Super Eagles, Toyin Ibitoye tweeted that Keshi is set to return to his job.

According to a report by Goal, Keshi has been asked to return to his post as part of reconciliatory efforts in the Nigeria Football Federation as ordered by President Goodluck Jonathan.
The Nigerian Football Federation has been having issues with FIFA over interference from the government in the sport. Last week, it was reported that Nigeria faced a lengthy ban from football if these issues are not sorted out.
The Super Eagles have four points and are behind South Africa (eight points), Congo (seven points) but ahead of Sudan (three points) in Group A.
