Oruma included in Nigeria squad for qualifier in Rwanda
 
LAGOS, May 13 (Reuters) - RC Lens midfielder Wilson Oruma will be looking for his first match for Nigeria in three years when they meet Rwanda in a World Cup qualifier next month.

Oruma, Karibe Ojigwe and forward Benedict Akwuegbu, who all last played for their country in 2002, were included in a 24-man squad for the Africa zone Group Four qualifier away to bottom team Rwanda in Kigali on June 5.

奥鲁马、奥吉韦和前锋阿格布自2002年以来首次被召入尼日利亚国家队。

England-based veterans Jay-Jay Okocha and Nwankwo Kanu were also included by Nigeria coach Christian Chukwu, who is on a coaches' training programme in Bolton where Okocha plays his Premier League football, the Nigerian Football Association said.

The players will assemble in London at the end of May for a tournament involving Ghana, Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago before travelling to Kigali.

The Nigerians, with 13 points from six games, lead Group Four by two points from Angola. Third-placed Zimbabwe have eight points, Gabon and Algeria six each and Rwanda four. Only the group winners qualify for the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany.
