Ekigho, Nwankwo, Oduamadi return to Eagles

The trio of Ekhiosun Ekigho, Obiora Nwankwo (pictured left)and Nnamdi Oduamadi have returned to the Super Eagles camp for Tuesday’s friendly game between Nigeria and Kenya in Abuja.

The three players were seconded to the Olympic team by Eagles coach, Samson Siasia at the request of Austin Eguavoen who coaches the U23s.

After their 5-0 win over the Guineans on Saturday, they have rejoined their senior colleagues at the Eagles.

Meanwhile, forwards Osaze Odemwingie and Victor Moses left the Super Eagles camp on Monday morning to return to their clubs.

Moses is ineligible to play for Nigeria until his application to switch nationality is approved by FIFA, while Odemwingie is off to continue treatment on his torn thigh muscle.

Moses application, with the accompanying documents, including a signed letter from the player has been forwarded to FIFA by the NFF and he is expected to be free to represent Nigeria away to Ethiopia in June.

Odemwingie passed a late fitness test after suffering a muscle tear in West Brom's last league game against Arsenal and spent most of the past week undergoing treatment from the Nigeria medical team.

Osaze posted on his twitter profile, @OdemwingieP “On board plane Abuja- London. My people sorry can't stay for the Kenya friendly. Took a little risk for official but don't want for friendly.”

This simply means he obviously played the game against Ethiopia with an injury and he would not want to take the same risk for a game that is not a competitive one for the national team.

"Those are the only players joining us from the Under 23 team," Head Coach Samson Siasia said, ruling out reports of Haruna Lukman has been invited.
