Forwards Osaze Odemwingie and Victor Moses left the Super Eagles camp on Monday morning to return to their clubs. 

Moses is ineligible to play for Nigeria until his application to switch nationality is approved by FIFA, while Odemwingie is off to continue treatment on his torn thigh muscle.

Moses application, with the accompanying documents, including a signed letter from the player has been forwarded to FIFA by the NFF and he is expected to be free to represent Nigeria away to Ethiopia in June.

Odemwingie passed a late fitness test after suffering a muscle tear in West Brom's last league game against Arsenal and spent most of the past week undergoing treatment from the Nigeria medical team.

To replace them, the duo of Ekigho Ehiosun and Nnamdi Oduamadi are to rejoin the squad after Olympic team duties on Saturday in Benin.

Ehiosu arrived on Sunday from Benin, while Oduamadi is expected on Monday afternoon.

"Those are the only two players joining us from the Under-23 team," Head Coach Samson Siasia said, ruling out reports of Haruna Lukman having been invited.
