Keshi picks 20 players for Liberia friendly

Super Eagles’ Head Coach, Stephen Keshi, eventually settled for a 20-man list on Monday for Wednesday’s international friendly match against the Lone Star of Liberia in Monrovia.

All the usual suspects were captured, including goalkeepers, Chigozie Agbim and Okemute Odah; defenders, Azubuike Egwueke, Papa Idris and Juwon Oshaniwa; midfielders, Gabriel Reuben and Bartholomew Ibenegbu; and strikers, Kalu Uche and Izu Azuka.The team flew out of Abuja to Lagos aboard an Air Nigeria flight on Monday afternoon, and will spend the night in Lagos before connecting another Air Nigeria airline flight to Monrovia on Tuesday morning.Keshi’s home boys will have an opportunity to feel the turf of the Antoinette Tubman Stadium on Monday evening before Wednesday’s clash with the Lone Star.The Nigeria Football Federation believes Wednesday’s game will prepare the home boys for the 2013 African Cup of Nations qualifying match against Rwanda in Kigali on February 29.
