Ike Uche Not On Keshi's 35 Man List



Six home lads get call up If nothing changes after Tuesday’s NFF technical committee meeting withKeshi, then England based Osaze Odemwingie would be making a return to the Super Eagles for the Brazil 2014 World Cup, just as six home lads get into the 35- man provisional list to be sent to world soccer governing body, FIFA. Sunday Sunsports exclusively gathered that Keshi has handed the Eagles World Cup list to team scribe Dayo Enebi Achor
who would in turn make it available to the technical committee ahead of the crucial Tuesday meeting where it would be discussed and ratified before
being sent to FIFA. According to our source 29 foreign based and six homers got Keshi’s nod.
Topping the list of the foreign pros is Osaze Odemwingie, who is making a return to the team, while Chigozie Agbim is leading the homers. The six home lads on the list are Chigozie Agbim (Gombe United) Dan Akpeyi (Warri Wolves), Ejike Uzoenyi
(Rangers), Azubuike Egwueke (Warri Wolves), Kunle Odunlami (Sunshine) and Abdullahi Shehu (Kano Pillars). It would be noted that all the
six players were part of the bronze winning CHAN
2014 squad. Our source further disclosed that Osaze
is in the list, alongside injured newcomer Leon Balogun. One player whose name is conspicuously missing is that of Spain based forward Ike Uche. According to our source Keshi has since explained to
NFF bigwigs why he does not want Uche in the team in spite of his current form. And everything points
to the technical committee respecting the wish of the
coach in a bid to avoid Keshi accusing the federation of interfering in his job. “Maigari has started reaching
out to the technical committee members to simply
ok the list because he doesn’t want any problem as the Eagles begin their final build up for the World Cup,” our source said. The NFF, we further gathered, has since last week gone ahead to process the
travelling documents of the home lads on the provisional list.
Its now up to the coaches to do their job and ensure the Eagles have a decent World Cup outing in Brazil.”
