Chairman of the NFF Technical Committee, Chris Green


The Technical and Development Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is scheduled to meet next week in Abuja and might make slight changes to Stephen Keshi's 30-man squad.

Nigeria head coach, Keshi announced a 30-man roster for the packed June schedule that will see the African champions play around 10 matches in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification, FIFA Confederations Cup and friendly matches.

The exclusion of captain Joseph Yobo has led to the NFF president, Aminu Maigari directing the federation's technical and development committee to intervene in the rift between Keshi and Yobo.

But the 30-man team announced on Thursday by Keshi will come under scrutiny when the NFF committee chaired by Christopher Green meets next week.

A member of the committee, Paul Bassey, informed: "The list could be tweaked a bit when the technical sub-committee meets next week."

The NFF technical committee will be intervening in the recent rifts between Keshi and a few of his other players apart from Yobo, reports

The row with Peter Odemwingie and Emmanuel Emenike will also be revisited by the football federation.

Nigeria's Super Eagles will make a trip to Nairobi to face Kenya on June 5 before moving to Windhoek for the Namibia tie seven days later in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification.

The African champions will take part in the Festival of Champions, the FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil this June and will go up against Tahiti, Uruguay and world champions, Spain in the group stage.
