Nigeria coach Samson Siasia has recalled West Bromwich Albion's Peter Odemwingie for a friendly against Ghana in London next month.

Siasia barred Odemwingie from his team's last two matches against Argentina and Ethiopia after the 30-year-old striker walked out on the team before a friendly against Kenya in March.

Coach and player have since made peace, allowing Siasia to recall him along with two uncapped players, Emmanuel Ekpo, who stars for Columbus Crew, and Warri Wolves goalkeeper Chigozie Agbim.

The Nigeria Football Federation announced in a statement that the players are due in London on 29 July for the match on 9 August.
