Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has announced the Super Eagles’ final 23-man list for the World cup.

Agbo, Lokosa and Eze and Ajiboye had been dropped from the first 30-man squad that was trimmed to 25 players after the farewell friendly against DR Congo in Port Harcout.

Crotone’s Simy Nwankwo, who was a surprise inclusion to the 30-man list was announced as part of the players to the World Cup after convincing Rohr of his abilities.

Surprisingly, Joel Obi who had an unimpressive game against England was named on the list of players to play at the World Cup.

The Torino midfielder started the game against the Three Lions in place of the unfit Wilfred Ndidi. Ndidi is expected to be fit for the World Cup and he was named in the 23-man list alongside his Leicester City teammates Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa.

Regulars like Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi, Chelsea’s Victor Moses and the captain, John Mikel Obi were on the list of players to feature in Russia.

The Super Eagles head to Austria for the final phase of their World Cup preparations. The team will play against Czech Republic on June 6 in their final friendly before the World Cup.

Nigeria is grouped with Argentina, Croatia and Iceland for the World Cup that starts on June 14.

The Super Eagles play their opening game against Croatia on June 16.
