The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, on Tuesday announced Nigeria’s provisional 30-man list for the FIFA 2014 World Cup.
The list, submitted by Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, was read on Tuesday evening by a member of the Technical Committee of the NFF, Paul Bassey.
Some the players who made the list include Mikel Obi, Victor Moses, Vincent Enyeama, Sunday Mba, and Ahmed Musa; all of whom were in the Nigerian side that won the 2013 African Cup of Nations.
Apart from the regulars, players who had hitherto fallen out with Keshi also made the list. These include Osaze Odemwingie and Joseph Yobo.
The invited players will resume camp on May 26 before a final list of 23 players will be selected for the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
