Cape Town - Stephen Keshi was left frustrated with a lack of cohesion in his side but was happy that there was visible improvement made from his side's clash with Congo.

After suffering a shock defeat to Congo in their first AFCON 2015 qualifying match, Nigeria were under pressure to deliver a much better performance against Bafana Bafana.

As it happened: Bafana Bafana 0 - Nigeria 0

The result sees Bafana Bafana lying second in the group on four points behind Congo Republic, who defeated Sudan earlier in the day to move to six points, while Nigeria are some way off the pace in third with just one point so far.

“The game was not bad,” said Keshi.

“I thought it was good tactical play and good play by Bafana. [I saw] a bit of improvement from my players … a lot better than what we did on Saturday." added Keshi.

"We have not been together and it’s taking time to gel.” 

Keshi's long-term future with the Super Eagles remains in doubt with reports suggesting he is yet to put pen on paper to a long term deal with the Nigerian Football Federation.
