Nigeria name uncapped strikers for World Cup

Okala said that he personally saw the provisional list as a good list "with lots of hope in it".

Super Eagles striker Olanrewaju Kayode has revealed that he does not have any hard feelings after being snubbed by manager Gernot Rohr in the 30-man provisional squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation. "I wish all the invited players best of luck", told ScoreNigeria.

The Kano Pillars hotshot has scored 18 goals so far in the current Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) season and leads the goal chart.

"The journey started in 2015 when I made my debut".

The goalkeeping area, which has given Rohr cause for concern recently, has the 19-year-old Francis Uzoho, Daniel Akpeyi, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, who kept in four of the qualifiers, and Plateau United's Dele Ajiboye, despite calls for the coach to extend an invitation to experienced Israel-based duo Austin Ejide and Dele Aiyenugba.

The Defenders are Leon Balogun, William Troost-Ekong, Kenneth Omeruo, Brian Idowu, Elderson Echejile, Shehu Abdulahi, Ola Aina, Tyrone Ebuehi, Stephen Eze and Chidozie Awaziem.

The list includes Captain Mikel John 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.

The Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup finals is scheduled to kick off on June 14 and end on July 15.
