Brazil 2014: No surprises in Keshi’s list

Whispers from around the Glass House have revealed that there will be no surprise inclusions in Nigeria’s 35-man provisional World Cup squad which will be released today by Super Eagles’ head coach Stephen Keshi.
The list features 21 players from the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winning side with Ikechukwu Uche and Obiora Nwankwo the only noticeable absentees.

Recently, capped Leon Balogun and Osaze Odemwingie expectedly made the list with the latter’s peace efforts seemingly paving way for his return to the national team set-up.
On the home front, as many as six players from the Glo Premier League who excelled at the African Nations Championship (Chan), earlier in the year, also made the provisional list.

The players are led by prominent figures like Ejike Uzoenyi, Chigozie Agbim, Azubuike Egwuekwe, Kunle Odunlami, Abdullahi Shehu and Daniel Akpenyi.
