Joining Mikel in the midfield are Ogenyi Onazi (Trabzonspor FC, Turkey); Wilfred Ndidi (Leicester City, England); Oghenekaro Etebo (UD Las Palmas, Spain); John Ogu (Hapoel Be'er Sheva, Israel); Uche Agbo (Standard Liege, Belgium); Joel Obi (Torino FC, Italy); and Mikel Agu (Bursaspor FC, Turkey). I think the Eagles are facing some challenges in some departments, which the coaches are fighting hard to correct.

The list, which consists of 4 goalkeepers, 10 defenders, 8 midfielders and 8 attackers, also includes Enyimba FC goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Deportivo La Coruna's shot stopper Francis Uzoho.

Meanwhile, Nigeria's group opponent at the World Cup, Argentina has also released its provisional squad with Dybala and Icardi included as part of what will be a formidable attacking force if all the names go.

"He is the surprise package for me".

"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.

Others are Ogenyi Onazi, Oghenekaro Etebo, Ahmed Musa and Victor Moses.

"Also, the partnership of the China-based players namely; Odion Ighalo and Mikel Obi will yield a lot of goals for the Super Eagles".

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

Paying the players their allowances as at when due can propel the players to give their best at the World Cup. The Nigerian team will play Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in Port Harcourt on May 25, after which the final 23-man squad will be announced.
