Sudan include Nigeria-born players in their provisional Afcon squad

Posted: 3 January 2012 Time: 07:44

The Sudanese national team has named Nigeria-born strikers Kelechi Osunwa and Kayode Sherif Sule in a provisional squad for its Africa Cup of Nations 2012 campaign.  

Osunwa, 27, who plays at Al Merreikh and Al Hilal’s Sule will have an opportunity to play at the Afcon when it begins on January 21.   Top scorer in the Sudanese league for three seasons, Osunwa played for Nigeria twice in 2004, but not in competitive matches, allowing him to still switch nationality to Sudan. On his part, 23 year-old Sule has never played for his country of birth.   Two other Nigeria-born players, Francis Ikechukwu and Isaac Malik, failed to make the Sudanese squad due to the lack of time in processing their international passports.

if the authorities in the glass hse dont see any quality in these boys, why wont they play for other countries? i beg leave them alone....9ja does not have problem with strikers but midfielders and defenders, i wish we could even trade off some strikers for midfielders and defenders from ghana, which they have in abundance!!

Nonetheless, I shall inbox you a hundred liters of fuel as new year present...abeg mek u save am well o or u fit even send me your relative info mek i send am the fuel for storage , i hear say for Naija fuel don scarce so tee dem no dey see fuel to take burn thief

Meanwhile, Nigeria has abundant talents and everyone cannot play for Super Eagles at once. So, congrats to those selected by the Sudanese.

one out of every four Africans is Nigerian, a true fact and not hypothetical guess .

My humble question is : What plans do we have towards changing the ills in our society this 2012 ???

Una well done o.

@kassav2k or cassava Yaw. we will support Ghana. We will also pray that the only ONE striker you have, Asamoah Gyan will recover on time and will not ballon a penalty over the bar with 30secs to the end of the match in the quarter finals of AFCON 2012

@Ben and Detmolder...flippomendes is right on spot!! I saw the picture he had earlier, it was a photo of a Kano pillars player and not Osunwa. I and my friends even laughed the error off. That Flippomendes pointed it out is good. Please in future dont take sides in any matter you are not sure of
