I promised to bring you the list of players as released by the Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, well there is more to it.

The super Eagles is set to open their 2014 World Cup campaign against Namibia and Malawa, and then after will host Rwanda in a 2013 African Cup of Nations tie and coach Stephe Keshi yesterday released the list of players to execute these matches.
The shocker of the list thought was that the great premier League stars John Obi Mikel, of the Champions League finalist club Chelsea F.C., who is yet to play for Nigeria since Keshi took charge in November; Taye Taiwo, Peter Odemwingie and Yakubu Aiyegbeni were all left out of the Stephen Keshi’s squad for the next month qualifiers series
Coach Stephen Keshi said at the release that “Mikel is in my plans but we will give other players an opportunity as well” he said he wants to give players from the local leagues a chance, stating that nobody knew of the likes of Uche Kalu, Ejike Uzoenyi or Geodfrey Oboabona until the opportunity was given.
Keshi told BBC that the door is still open to anyone
The Super Eagles will host Namibia on the 3rd of June in Calabar, before travelling to Malawi the following weekend for another qualifier.
The Overseas-based players called up in the list are:
GoalKeepers: Vincent Enyeama (Lille, France), Austine Ejide (Petach Tikva, Isreal)
Defeaders:      Joseph Yobo (Fenerbache, Turkey), Efe Ambrose (Ashdod, Isreal), Elderson Echiejile (Sporting Braga, Poturgal)
Midfielders:    Fengor Ogude (Valrenga Norway)
Forward:          Ike Uche (Granada, Spain), Ahmed Musa (CSKA, Moscow, Russia), Sone Aluko (Rangers, Scotland), John Utaka (Montpellier, France), Victor Moses (Wigan, Athletic, England)

Nigeria will name another squad of 18 players from the domestic league, who are due to fly out this weekend for a friendly in Peru
