After 30 players from the four corners of the world were invited by the big boss, Stephen Keshi, the die was cast to trim that number to 23 on or before June 2, 2014.
Nigeria, like other teams, had the luxury of playing a friendly game or two to help in seiving out the unfortunate 7. It is a big decision that the coach must make and hope it turns out to be the correct decision.
Well, the boss has chosen, after the 2-2 draw with Scotland and some training. Behold the final list:
Vincent Enyeama (Lille/FRA), Chigozie Agbim (Gombe United), Austin Ejide (Hapoel Be’er sheva/ISR)
Elderson Echiejile (Monaco/FRA), Efe Ambrose (Celtic FC/SCO), Godfrey Oboabona (Rizespor/TUR), Azubuike Egwuekwe (Warri Wolves/NGR), Kenneth Omeruo (Chelsea/ENG), Juwon Oshaniwa (Ashdod FC/ISR), Joseph Yobo (Norwich City/ENG), Kunle Odunlami ( Sunshine Stars/NGR).
