A top official of the NFF informed KickOffNigeria.com that Keshi wanted to first speak to the seven dropped players before his selections were aired to the media.

"It will not be right for us to release the list, and the players hear it from anybody other than the coach," explained the official prior to the squad announcement."

The dropped players will not leave immediately, but will stay for Tuesday's friendly against Greece.
