Stephen Keshi died in June 2016, less than seven months after he lost his wife, Kate, to cancer.
Keshi won the African Cup of Nations for Nigeria as a player in 1994 and was the only Nigerian to have won the same tournament as a coach, a feat he achieved in South Africa in 2013.
In the same year, he qualified the Super Eagles for the 2014 World Cup held in Brazil, thereby becoming the first African coach to qualify two African countries for the World Cup finals.
How thoughtful of Google.
