Oghenekaro Peter Etebo has not been included in Nigeria final 28-man squad for the Africa Cup of Nations

because his Premier League club Watford want him to focus on his rehabilitation from injury.

The Stoke City loanee, 26, moved to Vicarage Road in July and made six appearances in the Premier League before a thigh injury in

September curtailed his impressive start to life with the Hornets.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and interim coach Austin Eguavoen had hoped to include the experienced Etebo in his squad
even if he was not fit enough to play in all the Super Eagles matches.

However, Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, who had been a doubt for the tournament after picking up a serious facial injury in November,

is included after declaring himself fit to play in Cameroon.

Osimhen underwent surgery on his cheekbone and eye socket on 23 November, having sustained fractures in the 3-2 defeat

by Inter Milan two days earlier.

Despite not playing since his return to training wearing a protective mask and Napoli wanting to keep him away from the continental

showpiece , Nigeria expect him to play a big role in the finals that kick-off on 9 January.
