i so much love this list,the strenght of that team is the home base players,esp. The defence.
We should stop using names like obafemi,osaze,taiwo etc,they are only names and they have not offered much. We need to see new things.i so much trust the home base lads,and we need physical players to play african football.

honeric01: Come January 19th, the nations cup should be commencing.

By 9th of Januray, the coach is expected to submit his 23 man list.

We know nairaland is very popular in Nigeria and the world over and who knows, the coach could be a member of Nairaland reading comments posted on the sport board.

If you're given the chance to suggest a 23 man list for the coach, who would you be picking and why?

For a recap, here's the list of the 32 provisional man list again: (Take into notice that the coach can or may include or exclude any new or current player, so you're allowed to include/exclude just 2 players.).



Goalkeepers: Vincent Enyeama (Maccabi Tel Aviv, Israel); Austin Ejide (Hapoel Be’er Sheba, Israel); Chigozie Agbim (Enugu Rangers, Nigeria); Daniel Akpeyi (Heartland FC, Nigeria)

Defenders: Elderson Echiejile (FC Braga, Portugal); Juwon Oshaniwa (Ashdod FC, Israel); Benjamin Francis (Heartland FC, Nigeria); Joseph Yobo (Fenerbahce, Turkey); Efe Ambrose (Celtic FC, Scotland); Solomon Kwambe (Sunshine Stars, Nigeria); Azubuike Egwuekwe (Warri Wolves, Nigeria); Danny Shittu (Millwall FC, England); Kenneth Omeruo (ADO Den Haag, Netherlands); Godfrey Oboabona (Sunshine Stars, Nigeria)

Midfielders: Mikel Obi (Chelsea FC, England); Nosa Igiebor (Real Betis, Spain); Ogenyi Onazi (SS Lazio, Italy); Raheem Lawal (Adana Demirspor, Turkey); Obiora Nwankwo (Calcio Padova, Italy); Fegor Ogude (Valerenga FC, Norway); Reuben Gabriel (Kano Pillars, Nigeria); Rabiu Ibrahim (Celtic FC, Scotland)

Forwards: Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow, Russia); Emmanuel Emenike (Spartak Moscow, Russia); Brown Ideye (Dynamo Kyiv, Ukraine); Victor Moses (Chelsea FC, England); Uche Kalu (Rizespor, Turkey); Bright Dike (Portland Timbers, USA); Shola Ameobi (Newcastle FC, England); Ikechukwu Uche (Villarreal FC, Spain); Ejike Uzoenyi (Enugu Rangers, Nigeria); Sunday Mba (Enugu Rangers, Nigeria)

Listen i dont have time for to argue this morning,i quote you,because you ask why is Ejike in d list?
He is someone i work close with..him been on d list is not by mistake,He remain the best Player Discoverd by Keshi so far just like Osaze to Xtian CHukwu.Thank U

Read my post very well, i never asked why he was on the list, rather i asked why he was on the starting 11.
To you, he remains the best because you know him personally, but to others, the reverse is the same, i could also come out to say Onazi remains the best Keshi discovered or even say Dike.

So kindly tell us why he deserve to start ahead of other strikers that the poster benched. no one is here to argue.
Re: Who Should Make Your 23 Man List For The Nations Cup? by olatunji390(m): 5:12pm On Dec 25, 2012
I don't know much about football but I think home base should out number the foreign base because the foreign base have make names already so the best they do now is pulling shoulder on the field but for the home base, they want to make names, they want there names be heard so there spirit will be ready to serve there country.

I quote ur question to Andrew Uweh again(Why Ejike? ever watch his games ) dat means u neva watch him play but still u include him on ur 23 man list? i doubt if u know much about football or you dislike Ejike as person if not i challenge you to kindly name any home base player discoverd by Keshi who is better than him? upon his constant trials abroad while the league was one He was voted the best NPL player of the year along side Ruben which he lost to Ruben because Ruben help Pillars to win the NPL title.now on ur question why i think he shuld b on d starting list? tell me why he shuld be on ur 23 man list then i will tell u why he shuld b on startin list,thank u sir!

Yes, it was a question to Andre Uweh, how does that translate to me not knowing the guy? i needed him to explain why he chose the guy in his starting 11 squad, let him explain, why are you sweating for someone else? some people choose names just because they like the sound of the names, not because they even know the person in particular.

Now to you saying i don't know much about football or disliking the guy, why should i dislike someone i am not directly involved with?

For your information, Ejike wasn't discovered by Keshi, he's been around even under Amokachi's home based Eagles, stop trying to make this sound like i "hate" the guy.

The question was never to you or are you Andre Uweh? let the guy tell me why he prefers Ejike to Ideye/dike e.t.c in his starting 11.

I rather go with Sibi Gwar than Ejike if i really need an home based striker. this guy finished the league as the highest goal scorer, since he wasn't picked, i had to at least pick Ejike only to play as a substitute.

Shalom!

I expect him to answer, you can put up your own 23 man list and pick your starting 11, then we can take up yours if need be. having known that you have personal interest in Ejike, it would be hard letting you see reason why he shouldn't be a starting 11 material.

Your comment is childish bros! Anyway, can't comment much on the final list or the starting 11 as it were cause I don't even know some of this baby eagles imposed on us by Kesh. I will pray and hope they go to the southern africa and conquer the continent just as they did in the north a couple of years back.

Well yes, he's a good midfielder who can pay in a defensive and offensive role, he's got the built of Olofinjana but faster and more precised than Olofin. He's also very good at scoring and can even play as a defender. almost an all-rounder player and yes he's a Nigerian league player (Kano pillars)

So he's NOT the playmaker type?

If he ain't, then who cares?! I'm sure he can't cut it at international level anyway.

cashmentor: i'm not against these eagles though.... Infact, i'm a die hard SE Fan, but, i don't and never trusted Keshi.... So i'll be wasting my time here naming a team for a Coach that already knows his ist Eleven....
Anyway i'll just name players i fell don't deserve to be in the 23 man team!
Dike- don't deserve it at all.... Based on current form, Martins deserve that shirt.. Based on Commitment, martins is way ontop.
Rabiu Ibrahim: i love that dude like a brother from another Mother, but He's far from fitness and i think Aluko ought to have his place.....

Depending on opposition,

4-4-2 or 4-3-3

4-4-2

-------------Enyeama-------------

Ambrose--Yobo--Shittu---Echiejile

--------------Onazi-------------

-------------Mikel---------------

Musa------------------------Moses


--------Uche---------------------

----------------Ideye-----------

Subs
Emenike or Amoebi for Ideye
If Shittu falters, Oboabona for him
If our central midfield is not living up to expectation, sacrifice one of Musa or Moses(depending on who is not having good game) and bring in Igiebor, to assist Mikel in central midfield, then Uche moves to flank, so we have

-------Mikel----------Igiebor----

----Uche---------------Moses/Musa

--------Emenike/Ideye/Ameobi-----

This your bolded formation na die o, is Onazi a defensive midfielder? BTW, how can he play so deep while leaving just mikel in the middle? in your formation, Musa/moses are playing like wingers, not central midfielders, meaning they're expected to operate from the flanks, leaving Mikel alone in the midfield looks like a suicide mission to me.
