Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has closed the door on striker Ikechukwu Uche for the World Cup, saying he lacks tactical discipline.

Uche has been one of Nigeria’s reliable goal scorers and has scored 12 goals this season for Villarreal.

On Monday night, the striker returned to action after he was sidelined by injury for two weeks.

He last featured for Nigeria in the final of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations against Burkina Faso.

Keshi speaking to from his base in the United States said, "Ikechukwu Uche is not a player I have not seen play. Ike Uche problem is not knowing how to play football.

“His problem is that he wants to dictate how we play in Super Eagles, he wants to tell us the system we’re playing is not good.

"Uche he has a very bad habit, that if you put him in the game he is not playing to instructions and he did that in the final of AFCON against Burkina Faso, he almost cost us.

“Again he did that against Zambia, in the second match when (Efe) Ambrose was given a red card. What we told him to do, he was doing the opposite."

Keshi added: "And if you don't respect your team mates and you don't respect the team, then there is no point. I know he cannot do that in his club, then why do it in the national team?

"I don't think I need a player like that in the team."

Keshi don't bring ur discrimination in NFF, Ikechukwu Uche is a very good striker, He's better than Brown Ideye and others except Emenike, so u better call Him back or else. u know what I mean..

abeg mr keshi, call this ikechuwku uch,e sit him down and sound a note of warning to him , perhaps feature him in some friendlies, , before the world cup,, and see if he will turn a new leaf,,, it is very dangerous when a player is not playing according to instructions, or together with him team mates,, but to be honest from my own point of view,, ikechukwu uche is in a  good form at the moment,, so please,, mr keshi reconsider your stand on this issue,, world cup is not for boysssss oooo,, abeg!!!!

No no to this one.remember baloteli. We need experience strikers like him. You can change him on that.test ur warning during friendly matches b4 june.ideye and musa should not be considered.uche should be very much cautioned but make sure he's part of the list
