Anichebe was the only big omission from the Super Eagles’ squad that will begin training in Malaga, Spain, from January 4.

Vogts stuck to the players who have played under him since he took charge in March.

Several players from the local League were also called up including two from the victorious Under-17 World Cup team, the Golden Eaglets.

Vogts said they will only train with the other established players so as to gain experience.

“My target is to win the Cup and we can do that with a bit of luck,” said the German coach.
