Super Eagles dismiss reports of injury scourge in squad

Simy Nwankwo

"As we speak, the coaches are putting finishing touches to the provisional list from which our final squad for the World Cup will be released."I know that a lot of extensive work has been done".

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

Super Eagles Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr, yesterday named a 30-man provisional squad for next month's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, with Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) leading goals scorer Junior Lokosa and Plateau United first choice goaltender Dele Ajiboye making the list. I think the Eagles are facing some challenges in some departments, which the coaches are fighting hard to correct.

Captain Mikel Obi, goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa, defenders Abdullahi Shehu, Elderson Echiejile and Leon Balogun, as well as midfielders Ogenyi Onazi and Oghenekaro Etebo and forwards Ahmed Musa and Victor Moses all made the list.

Most of the players that ensured Nigeria qualified for the World Cup were included in the squad.

Taraji P. Henson engaged to National Football League star Kelvin Hayden
Finally it has happened to me!", the Maryland native said when questioned about her rumored relationship status. The Acrimony and Proud Mary actress is officially engaged to Kelvin Hayden , who's 13 years younger than her.

"He is the surprise package for me".

"There were really no major surprises in the list as the country's biggest goal contributors namely; Ahmed Musa, Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho are destined for Russian Federation".

Paying the players their allowances as at when due can propel the players to give their best at the World Cup.

After the release of the provisional list with names of 30 Nigerian players scattered across the globe, the rush to make the final 23-man squad has just begun.
