#WorldCupWith360nobs: Nigerian Coach Announces 30-Man Provisional Squad For Russia 2018

  • 2018 World Cup: Nigeria name uncapped Nwankwo in provisional squad

He opines that the level of support and encouragement given to the Nigerian side is enough to raise the anxiety of the players to give their best in Russia."Raising money to meet the demands of the Super Eagles to excel in Russia is very good if the money eventually got to them".

Midfielders include: Mikel John Obi, Wilfred Ndidi, Ogenyi Onazi, Mikel Agu, Uche Agbo, Joel Obi, Oghenekaro Etebo and John Ogu.

Meanwhile, Nigeria Professional Football League's highest goal scorer in the current season, Junior Lokosa, has been given the opportunity to stake a claim to a spot on the Russia-bound team after he was included in the 30-man list. I think the Eagles are facing some challenges in some departments, which the coaches are fighting hard to correct.

The list also includes Spain -based goalkeeper Francis Uzoho, defenders William Ekong, Kenneth Omeruo and Olaoluwa Aina, midfielders Wilfred Ndidi, Joel Obi and John Ogu and forwards Kelechi Iheanacho, Moses Simon and Alex Iwobi. I will not be surprised if Rohr sticks with those he has been working with.

The team's training camp will run from 22 May until 11 June.

That was one of five meeting records broken, while there were also eight world leads set at the Shanghai stadium. Birhanu Balew of Bahrain (13:09.64) won the race, with American Paul Chelimo (13:09.66) in second.


The squad will be led by team captain John Mikel Obi, and has usual suspects Victor Moses, Ahmed Musa and Odion Ighalo. I can't wait for the tournament to start already.

Emmanuel Amakiri, the proprietor of Amakson Football Academy said he wasn't completely satisfied with the list, adding that the goalkeeping and defence departments still looked weak.

"I still don't know what Ezenwa and Echiejile are doing in that squad?"

"Some however discovered their form when it mattered most, such as Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa who had to go back to Russian Federation to begin to command attention once again", he said.
