Rangers winger Ejike Uzoenyi, will finally get the chance to go to the World Cup, after he was recalled to the Super Eagles squad, to replace the injured Elderson Echiejile.

The left-back suffered a muscle tear in the goalless draw against Greece on Tuesday and the team officials are not ready to risk taking an injured player to the tournament.

Uzoenyi, who cried in the team bus after he was informed by Stephen Keshi, that he did not make the initial 23-man squad, will now get his chance to impress in Brazil.
