Lukman, Uche Back In Eagles Soon

Latest findings revealed that Lukman Haruna and Ikechukwu Uche are to be recalled to the Super Eagles ahead of the World Cup in Brazil, officials have said.
And both players could well get their chance as early as next month’s pre-World Cup friendly against Mexico in the USA.
Dynamo Kiev midfielder Haruna has been superb for his Ukrainian club after a recent injury setback, while Villarreal striker Uche has scored 12 goals in La Liga.
However, it is left to be seen whether a hamstring injury suffered by Uche last week may not stop him from the Mexico match.
Haruna last played for Nigeria at the 2010 World Cup, while Uche has not been involved with the national team since he bombed at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
It was also learnt that several other players who were not part of the qualifiers for Brazil 2014, but have been doing well at their various clubs in Europe will also be considered by coach Stephen Keshi.
“My team will be open to any Nigerian player who is doing well”, maintained Keshi.
The Eagles are due to resume training camp by the end of the month ahead of the friendly against Mexico on 5 March.
