It seems coach Keshi knows EXACTLY what he wants at the Nations cup. I am guessing he is going back to the super eagles of old. Strong holding midfield position and deadly wing play. He has chosen a strike force that included only ONE conventional centre forward. I like the team, and I hope they deliver.

It must be said however, that this is a big gamble.

Final Team:
Goalkeepers: Vincent Enyeama (Maccabi Tel Aviv/ISR), Austin Ejide (Hapoel Be’er Sheba/ISR), Chigozie Agbim (Enugu Rangers)

Defenders: Elderson Echiejile (FC Braga/POR), Juwon Oshaniwa (Ashdod FC/ISR), Joseph Yobo (Fenerbahce/TUR), Efe Ambrose (Celtic/SCO), Azubuike Egwuekwe (Warri Wolves), Kenneth Omeruo (ADO Den Haag/NED), Godfrey Oboabona (Sunshine Stars)

Midfielders: Mikel Obi (Chelsea/ENG), Nosa Igiebor (Real Betis/SPA), Ogenyi Onazi (SS Lazio/ITA), Raheem Lawal (Adana Demirspor/TUR), Obiora Nwankwo (Calcio Padova/ITA), Fegor Ogude (Valerenga/NOR), Gabriel Reuben (Kano Pillars)

Forwards: Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow/RUS), Emmanuel Emenike (Spartak Moscow/RUS), Victor Moses (Chelsea/ENG), Ikechukwu Uche (Villarreal/SPA), Ejike Uzoenyi, Sunday Mba (Enugu Rangers)

Source please cos I've checked and no website seems to corroborate what you've posted.

Also, info this morning was that Keshi would release the list to the NFF today for vetting and approval and it'd be announced and made public on Wednesday.

And considering the website has been giving exclusives on Eagles camp, I didnt doubt them much. Eagles media man, Ben Alaiya of Thisday is most likely their source.

The team list is not yet confirmed,i think we have to wait till after the friendly with cape verde tomorrow...

I think Dike and Ideye might make the list while someone like Uzoenyi will be out..

Re: AFCON 2013: Brown Ideye, Bright Dike Dropped From Final 23-Man Squad by Jarus(m): 6:13pm On Jan 08, 2013
I knew one of Emenike and Ideye would be dropped and all indicators had been pointing to Ideye.

Well, I think he should have taken both of them. They are the only two 9 in the initial list. Now we have just one conventional striker.

Also, I'm surprised Catalunya goal scorer, Dike, didnt make the final cut.

Re: AFCON 2013: Brown Ideye, Bright Dike Dropped From Final 23-Man Squad by Nobody: 11:36pm On Jan 08, 2013
Leaving Bright Dike out of the squad would be absolute madness. The boy came on and answered the questions that were asked of him, scoring against a Carlos Puyol - led backline. You can't ask for more than that from a striker.

It's fake, Keshi denied the list....it was actually delayed.
