Fulham's Dickson Etuhu (PA)

Dickson Etuhu is a strong central midfielder who has become a part of the Nigeria team in recent times. He first played competitive football with the Super Eagles at Ghana 2008 Nations Cup under Berti Vogts but soon fell out of favour under Shuaibu Amodu.

It was not until the approach of Angola 2010 that he received a call up under Amodu and he went on to play in the tournament impressively.

Hitting good form with Fulham in the lead up to the World Cup, Etuhu could be the player that Nigeria need to fill the gap behind Mikel John Obi in the midfield. The combative midfielder is never afraid of any opponent.

Did you know?

Dickson has a younger brother Kelvin who is also a professional footballer.
