Odemwingie last featured for the Super Eagles in February, and has scored 29 league goals since his move to The Hawthorns from Lokomotiv Moscow. He has four goals this season, but has registered just nine times in 55 games for his country.

Midfielders: Mikel Obi (Chelsea/England), Nosa Igiebor (Real Betis/Spain), Ogenyi Onazi (Lazio/Italy), Raheem Lawal (Adana Demirspor/Turkey), Obiora Nwankwo (Padova/Italy), Fegor Ogude (Valerenga/Norway), Gabriel Reuben (Kano Pillars), Rabiu Ibrahim (Celtic/Scotland)

Forwards: Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow/Russia), Emmanuel Emenike (Spartak Moscow/Russia), Brown Ideye (Dynamo Kiev/Ukraine), Victor Moses (Chelsea/England), Uche Kalu (Rizespor/Turkey), Bright Dike (Portland Timbers/ USA), Shola Ameobi (Newcastle/England), Ikechukwu Uche (Villarreal/Spain), Ejike Uzoenyi, Sunday Mba (Enugu Rangers)

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
