Nigeria’s head coach Stephen Keshi has resigned from his post in the aftermath of their World Cup exit, reports The Telegraph.

The Super Eagles made it past the group stage for the first time since the 1998 tournament in France, coming through a tricky group thanks to a narrow win over Bosnia and Herzegovina. But in the round of 16 they came up against a French side in fine form, and despite a valiant effort ultimately fell to two late French goals.


Coach Keshi quit within hours of the honourable defeat, saying: "It's time for me to go back to my family and face fresh challenges."


Keshi had a distinguished career as a player, winning 64 caps for Nigeria and captaining the team at their first ever World Cup finals in the USA in 1994. Following retirement he moved into coaching and after stints in charge of the national teams of Togo and Mali, took the top job of his native country in 2011.


In 2013 he led his country to victory in the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. He attempted to resign in the wake of this success but was persuaded to remain in the post for another year.


Reports have now linked Keshi with the head coach role of the South African national team.
