Keshi calls up Agbim, 23 others for CIV

26 June 2013, 11:13

Super Eagles' coach Stephen Keshi has swiftly turned his attention to the 2014 African Nations Championship qualifying match against Cote d’Ivoire by calling up 24 home boys for the game billed for the end of next week, KickOffNigeria.com reports.

Even as the African champions were rueing several missed chances in the 3-0 defeat to world and European champions Spain at the FIFA Confederations Cup tournament in Brazil, Keshi pencilled down goalkeeper Chigozie Agbim, defenders Azubuike Egwuekwe, Godfrey Oboabona, Solomon Kwambe and Benjamin Francis, midfielders Emeka Eze and Sunday Mba and forward Muhammad Gambo from the squad that were with him in Brazil, and added 14 more from Nigeria’s top-flight and two from the lower division.

Returning are goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi, defender Kunle Odunlami and strikers Obinna Nwachukwu and Gomo Onduku, who were part of the team’s training camp in Germany ahead of the international friendly with Mexico in Texas, USA.
