Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi has promised that Nigeria will bounce back from their 2-1 opening day loss to Mali in Saturday’s African Nations Cup opener.

Keshi told Kick-Off magazine that the poor performance of his players was anticipated as he feared they may develop cold feet once they stepped onto the big stage.

"The pressure was massive and I expected this type of thing happening…But I am certain that they now know that they have to satisfy themselves and have confidence in themselves, because we have lost the opening game and we have to forget that and fight for qualification from the remaining two games."

Nigeria's next game comes up against Mozambique on Wednesday. The Black Mambas lost their opening game 3-1 to South Africa on Saturday, despite first taking the lead against the lead against the hosts.
