Football: Nigeria squad for World Cup play-off

Nigeria named a 25-man squad for their 2014 World Cup play-off against Ethiopia and a friendly against Italy in London on Sunday. Nigeria will host Ethiopia in a return leg playoff on November 16 in Calabar after they won the first game 2-1 in Addis Ababa last month. Two days later, they battle Italy in a friendly at Craven Cottage in London. The two additions to the squad from last month's World Cup play-off win in Ethiopia are Kenneth Omeruo from Chelsea and Scotland-based Gabriel Reuben. Both players have been out of the squad on account of long-term injuries.
