Echiejile out-Ejike in
Nigeria’s coach Stephen Keshi has denied reports of a lifeline for Elderson Echiejile’s world cup participation. He told Kickoff Nigeria that he is ‘pained that Echiejile, who is a very key member of the squad will be missing out after putting in so much.
‘We have spoken to the medical team and the NFF and we have agreed’
He expressed his surprise at reports suggesting that he might still consider including the Monaco star in his world cup squad. ‘
‘I was a bit shocked when I got a call from some of my friends back home that I insisted on an injured player’ Keshi said.
Ejike Uzoenyi has already been allotted the number 3 Jersey hitherto worn by Echiejile
