NIGERIA goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has recovered from a hip injury which kept him out of a World Cup qualifier against Algeria, but he was benched yesterday by his English Championship side Wolves. Wolves lost 2-0 at home to Sheffield Wednesday with Ikeme an unused substitute, while compatriot Dominic Iorfa played the entire game. Wolves are now flirting with relegation under new manager Paul Lambert. They are 21st on the 24-team table with 18 points from as many matches.
