Coach Keshi has said Aluko could still play for Nigeria again, despite being overlooked for over two years.
"Sone Aluko, like many others, is still in my plans. I've seen him before, but we can't invite all the players to camp," Keshi explained.
Aluko, who has also represented Nigeria at the Under-20 World Cup and played for their Olympic team, says he is under no illusions about the task facing him in his quest for a recall.
"Being in his plans but not in the squad doesn't really help me," he said.
"We all want to go to Brazil and I haven't played in a single qualifier leading up to it so I think actions speak louder than words and right now it's clear I'm not in his plans so I wont sugar-coat it.
"But playing well in the Premier League and in God keeping me healthy is where my hope is."
