Edinburgh - Defender Efe Ambrose has shifted focus on club career after the Super Eagles could not qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, The Scotsman reports.
Nigeria lost the AFCON 2015 tickets to South Africa and Congo Brazzaville, and will not defend the trophy won in 2013 in the Rainbow nation.

The defender, though pained by the unfortunate event, has now shifted attention to club duties.
