Coach Samson Siasia has left out Osaze Odemwingie from his squad for June’s double header against Argentina and Ethiopia.

Instead, Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi has been called up to take part in the high-profile friendly against the South Americans in Abuja and an African Nations Cup qualifier in Addis Ababa.

Siasia also handed a recall to defender Yusuf Mohammed to plug the hole at right-back, with Heartland’s Chibuzor Okonkwo the only available right-back following the tragic loss of Adefemi Olubayo early this month.

Also recalled is Karabukspor striker Emmanuel Emenike.

Vincent Enyeama (Hapoel Tel Aviv, Israel), Dele Aiyenugba (Bnei Yehuda, Israel), Austin Ejide (Hapoel Petah Tikva, Israel)

Why I dropped Osaze – Siasia

Nigeria coach Samson Siasia, who left out  Osaze Odemwingie from his squad to face Argentina and Ethiopia next month, has explained why the West Brom striker was sidelined from the two crucial matches.

Siasia said last night that Odemwingie was dropped as punishment after missing the friendly against Kenya last month without permission.

“He [Odemwingie] broke camp rule by leaving without seeking permission during our last match,” said Siasia.
“Until he comes back to explain why he did that, the national team doors are not open to him.

“It was an act of indiscipline and we don’t condone that.”

Odemwingie was not included in the team despite scoring 15 goals in his debut season in the English Premier League.

Osaze is our best striker so far. The lad is marvellous, Siasia should settle with him amicably. He is his boy. I wish them well!!!

Osazee is playing well, Siasia should try to forgive him. we can't afford to miss him in the team.
