Centre-back who has his critics among the national press and Super Eagles fans. While few would deny Egwuekwe’s heart and power, he lacks pace and struggles against more mobile forwards.

He was badly exposed against Spain at the Confederations Cup and lacked Oboabona’s composure when called upon to deal against Mario Balotelli in November.

Nonetheless, a Keshi favourite and a squad regular who hasn’t missed a call-up in 2014 or 2013. He recently ended his honeymoon prematurely to return to the aid of club side Warri Wolves.
