share on:

Super Eagles head coach Stephen Keshi has stated that some players who had not featured in his squads recently like former captain Joseph Yobo, Haruna Lukman, Chinedu Obasi and Osaze Odemwingie were still part of the squad.

The former Mali boss however warned that even though he is ready to welcome them back, it will not be based on sentimental grounds, but on what they can bring to the team.

“We don’t want to play names but any player who can bring success to the team is what we are after and if these players we have mentioned have it then they can go with us to the World Cup,” he said.

“We have players as old as 39 years-old playing at top level for their countries and some have been very successful at that, I want to see that happen in Nigeria.”
