LAGOS - Nigeria have added Portsmouth winger John Utaka to their squad for next month's crucial World Cup qualifier against Tunisia, the Nigerian Football Association said.
Utaka is a late inclusion by coach Shaibu Amodu, who kept open two places in a 23-man squad announced last week for the match in Abuja on September 6.
Amodu has also belatedly brought in Swiss-based defender Obinna Nwaneri, preferring him to Fulham's Dickson Etuhu.
Amodu has also dropped Bolton Wanderers centre- back Danny Shittu and striker Obafemi Martins, who recently moved to German champions VfL Wolfsburg.
Nigeria will go top of Africa's Group B standings if they beat Tunisia. The two sides drew 0-0 in Tunisia in their last qualifier in June. - Reuters
