Super Eagles manager Stephen Keshi has said the fallout of his side’s participation at the forthcoming Fifa World Cup in Brazil will help him decide on his career future.

The employer of the former Nigerian defender, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), appears cold towards opening discussion on contract extension for Keshi whose subsisting contract is expected to elapse shortly after the quadrennial global football showpiece.

Keshi said he has options open for him once he is done with the World Cup, insisting that he will not hesitate to switch over to the one that best suits him as a core professional.

“I’ve plan A as well as plan B. Both plans are well spelt out in my mind and after the World Cup if the condition on ground is conducive and favourable l’ll stay and if it’s not comfortable I’ll behave naturally as a core professional,” said the former Eagles of Mali coach.

Keshi said he has set a personal target for himself at the World Cup which will be clearer as his wards march strongly at the Mundial.

“Of course, I’ve a personal target for myself at the World Cup which will be a bit clearer as we progress with each match,” Keshi said.

The former Nigerian captain was emphatic that none of the players angling for attention is guaranteed of a spot in the impending World Cup list.

“None, not even one player is certain at the moment for a shirt in the World Cup squad,” said the former Togo coach.

Keshi, however, said he is comfortable with players coming to the Mundial with their respective spouses.

“I won’t frown at players coming to the World Cup with their legitimate wives but I can’t give the same commitment to girlfriends,” Keshi said in a media parley put together by the national team's official candy, Tom Tom, in Lagos on Tuesday.

The 2013 Afcon champions will campaign in Group F at the World Cup in Brazil with Iran, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Argentina.
