Three uncapped players from the Premiership have been included in the Nigeria squad.
Everton striker Victor Anichebe is one of three uncapped players from the Premiership to be included in Nigeria's squad for the 2008 African Nations Cup qualifier against Uganda.
Anichebe is joined by Aston Villa's Gabriel Agbonlahor and Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha in the 37-strong squad and are among eight uncapped players invited by the Nigeria Football Association for the home game on 24th March.
Newcastle defender Celestine Babayaro has also been recalled to the side.
Babayaro has been out of the Super Eagles squad since he was sent away from the 2004 competition in Tunisia for breaking camp rules.
Several other players who ply their trade in the English game are also included in the squad.
Wolves' duo Carl Ikheme and Seyi Olofinjana, Everton's Joseph Yobo, Port Vale defender George Abbey, John Mikel Obi from Chelsea, Wigan's Julius Aghahowa, Newcastle forward Obafemi Martins, Portsmouth's Nwankwo Kanu and Middlesbrough striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni have all received call-ups.
