The release was made after a meeting with the Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation.
Meanwhile the list came with lots of surprises as those who were sure of making the team were left out while players like Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo, who has not played for the national team for over a year was among the chosen ones.
Also Stoke City striker Peter Odemwingie was also part of the Nigeria’s preliminary World Cup squad on Tuesday.
However the list will be reduced after series of friendly games to a final 23 men squad who will be going to Brazil,starting with the match against Scotland on May 28.
