Emenike, Nsofor, Ameobi Return For Super-Eagles by scopusng(m): 5:42pm On Jul 17, 2013
Nigeria have left out goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama but handed recalls to Emmanuel Emenike, Obinna Nsofor and Shola Ameobi for next month's Nelson Mandela Challenge.

The trio are in a squad of 20 named by Stephen Keshi for the game in against South Africa in Durban on August 14.

Also returning in what is a very strong squad is Chelsea star Victor Moses, who missed the Confederations Cup with injury.

The annual Mandela Challenge contest at the Moses Mabhida Stadium is in honour of ailing former South African President, Nelson Mandela, one of the world’s greatest statesmen.

Russia-based Emmanuel Emenike, top scorer at the 29th Africa Cup of Nations that Nigeria won in South Africa earlier in the year, returns to the squad for the first time since that feat, and there is also room for Newcastle United FC’s Shola Ameobi, who recently again made himself available for Nigeria.

Nimble-footed Chelsea FC ace Victor Moses is also back and while goalkeeper and skipper Vincent Enyeama is left out, sharp-shooting Obinna Nsofor returns after nearly two years in the international wilderness.

Former junior international forward Uche Nwofor, of VVV Venlo in the Netherlands, is a surprise invitee in a list dominated by the squad that represented Nigeria at last month’s Fifa Confederations Cup tournament in Brazil.

Coach Keshi has placed three home boys - defenders Benjamin Francis and Solomon Kwambe and striker Muhammad Gambo - and little known Norway-based Samuel Aaron on standby.

THE FULL LIST:

GOALKEEPERS: Austin Ejide (Hapoel Be’er Sheva, Israel); Chigozie Agbim (Enugu Rangers, Nigeria)

DEFENDERS: Kenneth Omeruo (Chelsea FC, England); Efe Ambrose (Celtic FC, Scotland); Godfrey Oboabona (Sunshine Stars, Nigeria); Azubuike Egwuekwe (Warri Wolves, Nigeria); Elderson Echiejile (Sporting Braga,
Portugal)

MIDFIELDERS: Mikel Obi (Chelsea FC, England); Fegor Ogude (Valerenga FC, Norway); Victor Moses (Chelsea FC, England); John Ogu (Academica de Coimbra, Portugal); Ogenyi Onazi (SS Lazio, Italy); Nnamdi Oduamadi (AC Milan, Italy); Sunday Mba (Enugu Rangers, Nigeria).

FORWARDS: Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow, Russia); Brown Ideye (Dynamo Kyiv, Ukraine); Shola Ameobi (Newcastle United, England); Emmanuel Emenike (Spartak Moscow, Russia); Obinna Nsofor (Lokomotiv Moscow, Russia); Uche Nwofor (VVV Venlo, Netherlands)

STANDBY: Solomon Kwambe (Sunshine Stars, Nigeria); Benjamin Francis (Heartland FC, Nigeria); Muhammad Gambo (Kano Pillars, Nigeria); Samuel Aaron (Sarpsborg ‘08 , Norway)

It is a strong squad. I expect us to wallop South Africa.

But seriously, it's high-time we stop playing the likes of South Africa for Friendly. We have become bigger than that. That's how we bullied all the African countries and capitulated on the international scene.

What's wrong with playing Holland, Belgium, Italy, and even Brazil in friendlies? Nff should do something about this. Friendlies is the place to test and experiment with players, not the Confederations cup or World cup.

Make Keshi no tell us say im go experiment with players for World Cup if we crash out in the group stage oh. We no go gree o!

What a strong squad! Every department of the team is filled with super-players. The Bafana Bafana will surely be in serious trouble on the 14th.

Why is everything in South Africa about Nelson Mandela?

Mandela cup
Mandela spoon
Mandela holiday
Mandela stadium
Mandela currency
Mandela birthday
Mandela hospital
Mandela Island
Mandela round about
Mandela junction etc.


While he was in prison, were they no other aparthied prisoners with him?

They are toturing this man with life machines just to declare a holiday on his birthday.

No matter how hard we try, Nature will always be our master.
