Google celebrates late Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi with a doodle

Stephen Okechukwu Keshi, popularly known as the Big Boss, who guided Nigeria to the African Cup of Nations title, would have celebrated his 56th birthday if he were to be alive today.

 

However, tech Giant, Google has honoured the legend with a doodle.  Doodles are changes made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists.

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.
