Martins fit for Nations Cup

Obafemi Martins has been declared fit and included in Nigeria's squad for the African Nations Cup finals in Angola, team officials said on Sunday.

The striker had undergone fitness tests at the team's training camp in Durban, South Africa over the weekend before being named in coach Shaibu Amadou's 23-man squad.

Martins underwent surgery on his shin at the end of November after getting injured while playing for Bundesliga club VfL Wolfsburg.

Nigeria, who play in June's World Cup finals in South Africa, take on Egypt in their opening Nations Cup Group C match on January 12 in Benguela. They also meet Benin and Mozambique in their group.
