Super Eagles head coach Stephen Keshi has stated that players like Joseph Yobo, Osaze Odemwingie, Chinedu Obasi Ogbukem and Haruna Lukman, who have not featured in his plans recently, are still part of the team.

Keshi, however, warned that even though he is ready to welcome them back, it will not be based on sentimental grounds, but on what they can bring to the team.

Keshi also declared that he will not promise the 2014 CHAN trophy, but hopes the team will still make Nigeria proud.
