Swings And Roundabouts For Poor Pardew!
Alan Pardew breathed a huge sigh of relief on Saturday when Senegal saw their involvement in the qualification process come to an end amid chaotic scenes ...
He will still be without Ivory Coast midfielder Cheick Tiote, and with Nigeria revealing that they would be prepared to draft Ameobi into their squad ... the Toon boss must be shaking his head.
Nigeria head coach Stephen Keshi: "Shola is a good striker and he has a chance to be on the plane to South Africa.
"I've been watching him closely and he's got something unique.
"He will definitely bring something different to the attack.
"I have Shola and (Everton's) Victor Anichebe in my striking plans."
