Enyeama was excused from this month's qualifiers against Congo and South Africa to attend to pressing family problems, while Moses was left out as coach Stephen Keshi said he was off form. However, Ikechukwu Uche has again been overlooked by Keshi, who said the Villarreal striker insists on being begged to play for his country. The player has denied this.
Keshi has called up several new faces though, in China-based Aaron Samuel, Sunday Emmanuel, who plays in Austria, Hope Akpan of English side Reading and Anyora Ugonna, who plies his trade in Norway.
