Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi does not look to include Villareal of Spain striker Ikechukwu Uche in his World Cup squad, citing tactical indiscipline.

The striker, who has scored 12 goals for his La Liga side this season, returned in the ‘Yellow Submarine’s’ squad for their trip to Espanyol on Monday after recovering from hamstring problem which kept him on the sideline for two weeks.

His last appearance for the Super Eagles was in the 1-0 African Cup of Nations (Afcon) final win against Burkina Faso in February 2013.

Keshi is quoted by as saying: “Ikechukwu Uche is not a player I have not seen play. Ike Uche problem is not knowing how to play football.

“His problem is that he wants to dictate how we play in Super Eagles, he wants to tell us the system we’re playing is not good.

“Uche he has a very bad habit, that if you put him in the game he is not playing to instructions and he did that in the final of AFCON against Burkina Faso, he almost cost us.

“Again he did that against Zambia, in the second match when (Efe)Ambrose was given a red card. What we told him to do, he was doing the opposite.”

Keshi added:”And if you don’t respect your team mates and you don’t respect the team, then there is no point. I know he cannot do that in his club, then why do it in the national team?

“I don’t think I need a player like that in the team.”
