Martins left out of Nigeria squad

Levante fans have reason to celebrate this afternoon after Nigeria's squad for the African Cup of Nations was released.

Stephan Keshi has named his preliminary 32-man squad for the tournament in South Africa in January, which does not include Granotes striker Obafemi Martins.

It means the 28-year-old will not miss any of the campaign come the New Year, which will no doubt please boss Juan Ignacio Martinez.

Martins has been integral to the Ciutat de Valencia side this season, having scored six goals in 13 League matches, firing them to sixth in the table.
