Former Super Eagles players have expressed different opinions on the national team's 23-man list released by Coach Stephen Keshi on Wednesday for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations scheduled to begin on January 19, 2013.
The Nigeria 2000 Eagles defender, Taribo West believes Keshi picked the best players at his disposal but has his reservation on the inclusion of Italy-based midfielder, Obiora Nwanko.
"It's not a bad list; I believe Keshi picked the best players for the Nations Cup," the former AC Milan centre back said.
"But I am not expecting miracles or signs and wonders from the team in South Africa. We have a good team for the future which means in the next years, they can become the best. The Nations Cup should be used to prepare for the 2014 World Cup".
"The defence team is made up of young boys who are ready to play for their country. Though the defenders weren't coordinated on Wednesday against Cape Verde, I believe Captain Joseph Yobo will bring his experience to bear in that department".
"The team is based on the current form of the players; there is no sentiment and I believe they will go far in the tournament," Okala told the Nigerian News Agency
