Nigeria recalls Odemwingie, Ekpo for Ghana clash

Osaze Odemwingie has been recalled to the Nigeria squad, and as exclusively reported by KickOffNigeria.com, Columbus Crew midfielder Emmanuel Ekpo has also been named to face Ghana in London next month.

Ekpo is one of two newcomers, along with Warri Wolves goalkeeper Chigozie Agbim, listed by Nigeria coach Samson Siasia on Tuesday.

Odemwingie last played for Nigeria in an African Nations Cup qualifier in March.

The forward was excluded from the Nigeria set up by Siasia after leaving the team camp without permission.

Both men recently made up after an apology by the West Brom man, earning the striker a recall.

However, there was no place for Dinamo Kiev forward Brown Ideye, who will be on standby.

And, as also exclusively disclosed by KickOffNigeria.com, there is also no place for defender Dele Adeleye.


Goalkeepers: Vincent Enyeama, Dele Aiyenugba, Chigozie Agbim
Defenders: Chibuzor Okonkwo, Taye Taiwo, Gege Soriola, Elderaon Echiejile, Joseph Yobo, Yusuf Ayila, Efe Ambrose
Midfielders: John Obi Mikel, Fengor Ogude, Joel Obi, Kalu Uche, Emmanuel Ekpo, Solomon Okoronkwo
Forwards: Obinna Nsofor, Victor Anichebe, Ike Uche, Osaze Odemwingie, Ekigho Ehiosun, Emmanuel Emenike.
