Nigeria - who boast the likes of John Mikel Obi, Obafemi Martins and Yakubu Ayegbeni in their ranks - will head for Europe later this week after a farewell presidential dinner in the capital Abuja on Thursday.

Colombia missed out on qualification for the FIFA World Cup after finishing seventh in the ten-team CONMEBOL qualification programme. Their squad could include Atletico Madrid centre-back Luis Perea, Wigan Athletic striker Hugo Rodallega and the prolific Porto forward Falcao.
