CHAN: Keshi Drops 2 Eagles

Super Eagles technical crew has began the gradual process of elimination by substitution when on Tuesday afternoon, two players were asked to go for low productivity.
But, four new players were called up to strengthen the squad ahead of the African Nations Championship, CHAN slated for South Africa next month.
The two players dropped are midfielder Mohammed Ajia of Bayelsa United and Elkanemi of Maiduguri defender, Reuben Ogbonnaya.
Head Coach Stephen Keshi, who spoke through his assistant, Dan ‘The Bull’ Amokachi, said there was little or no time to prepare the squad hence the need to quickly identify tournament materials.
The four players who are expected to join the squad in Abuja immediately are Bendel Insurance duo of Obannu Erhune, who stars for the Benin side in the central defence position and his teammate, Ikeleji Bello, who is central defensive midfielder.
The other two are Warri Wolves Ewenike Achibi, also a midfielder and Mfon Udoh who recently crossed from Akwa United to Enyimba FC of Aba.
“We have been tracking these players for some time now and we want to give them a chance to prove themselves at a critical point like this and we hope they won’t disappoint”, Amokachi declared.
Indications have also emerged that more players who fail to measure up will be asked to go after Wednesday’s test match against Niger Tornadoes of Minna and another practice match scheduled for Saturday at the Abuja National Stadium.
