Disu feels veteran striker Obafemi Martins was "unfortunate" not to have made the list after his exploits with Shanghai Shenhua was halted by a serious injury, thus, ending hopes of a recall.

You don't pick players just to make up the numbers or based on sentiments because the opportunity might come there for him to play - anybody might get injured. "I am not saying that's the same thing Ajayi did but they have to give him a chance".
