Google celebrates Keshi


Google has created a doodle of the late former Nigeria coach, Stephen Keshi, on its opening page on Tuesday to celebrate what he would have been  at 56.

Google said the doodle was to recognise the legacy  of the former coach Super Eagles captain  who  died  on June 7, 2016, at 54.

Doodles are the fun and spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists.

The doodle, which will  be viewed in  all African countries, illustrates the unique achievement of  Keshi, who won the  1994 Africa Cup of Nations as player in and as a coach in 2013.

The author of  Things Fall Apart Chinua Achebe  (deceased)  was another notable personality honoured by Google in the past.

Google said, “Keshi is one of only two men to win the Africa Cup of Nations as both a player and a manager, a testament to his wit, talent, and love for the sport.”
