Nigerian fans react to Lokosa's Super Eagles invitation

Nigerian fans react to Lokosa's Super Eagles invitation

Kano Pillars hit man Junior Lokosa has attributed his invitation to the Super Eagles 30-man team for the 2018 World Cup to God.

There is, however, no place in the squad for recuperating Henry Onyekuru, whilst Brown Ideye misses out on the World Cup for the second consecutive time after being dropped prior to the 2014 edition.

There is only one South African-based player in the squad as Chippa United's Daniel Akpeyi was named as one of the four goalkeepers. I will not be surprised if Rohr sticks with those he has been working with. He truly deserves it especially having scored 18 goals in 20 games for Kano Pillars in the NPFL so far this season.

"However, even if he does not make it to Russian Federation, the experience in the Super Eagles camp and training will be very good for his growth and development", he said.

Speculation over which players makes the final 23-man squad is already rife amongst those eager to see their favourite players turn out for the Super Eagles.

The attackers are Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow, Russia); Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester City, England); Moses Simon (KAA Gent, Belgium); Victor Moses (Chelsea FC, England); Odion Ighalo (Changchun Yatai, China); Alex Iwobi (Arsenal FC, England); and another newcomer, Nwankwo Simeon (Crotone FC, Italy).

"I know that a lot of extensive work has been done".

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

The Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup finals is scheduled to kickoff from June 14 to July 15.
