Nigeria coach Stephen Keshihas invited 30
players in his provisional squad for the 2014
World Cup that starts on June 12. The
reigning African champions will be making
their fifth appearance at football's showpiece
and have been drawn in the same group
with Argentina, Iran and Bosnia.
Usual suspects Vincent Enyeama, Mikel Obi,
Efe Ambrose, Godfrey Oboabona, Ahmed
Musa and Victor Moses are called, as well as dark horses Ramon Azeez, Michael
Babatunde and Azubuike Egwuekwe while midfield ace Joel Obi and Peter
Odemwingie return after several months in the international wilderness.
Top scorer of the 29th Africa Cup of Nations, Emmanuel Emenike, back from
injury, returns to the fold.
However, injured Nosa Igiebor and Reuben Gabriel are the surprise inclusion in
the squad while the Big Boss snubbed Ikechukwu Uche, Dynamo Kiev's Brown
Ideye, Hull City’s Sone Aluko and Fegor Ogude who have had a great season.
There are four goalkeepers, eight defenders, eight midfielders and ten strikers.


Uche is not among now
