Stephen Keshi has ruled. As announced Africa Top Sport, the coach of Nigeria announced on Tuesday an initial list of thirty players for the 2014 World Cup. http://en.africatopsports.com/2014/05/07/nigeria-odemwingie-back-the-30-eagles-of-keshi-for-world-cup-2014/
If Peter Odemwingie (Stoke City) is back in the Super Eagles, one can notice the absence of Imoh Ezekiel . The Standard Liege striker must be very disappointed. After the failure suffered for his naturalization in Belgium, the Nigerian had eventually accepted the call of his coach, Stephen Keshi .
Yet the player had an excellent season in the colors of Standard. He is author of 11 goals and 9 assists since the beginning of the current year in the Jupiler Pro League. Ezekiel, however, made the trip to the USA in a friendly match against Mexico last March. He seemed to be well positioned to participate in the great world appointment to be held in a month hence.
Although the competition was fierce among Eagles, notably with Peter Odemwingie, Victor Moses and Emanuel Emenike, it must still be a big disappointment for Imoh Ezekiel who, in addition, has lost his starting spot in the Rouches. This probably played against him.
