Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi is relishing the opportunity to take on Arsenal in a friendly.
The former Mali boss believes it will help his side prepare for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup qualifying.
“It’s another opportunity for me to see how these players can cope with a different pattern of play from some established stars like [Robin] Van Persie, [Lukas] Podolski and the rest,” Keshi said.
Keshi is confident that his players will do the country proud when they face the Gunners.
“It’s amazing for me and for them; I believe they will give their best during the encounter,” the coach added.
