By Segun Oniyide


Stephen Keshi Super Eagles coach admitted his facing selection Problems ahead of the World Cup, but added he is happy it is so, “It’s going to be very difficult because Nigeria is blessed with a lot of good players,” said Keshi.

He said I just pray we pick the right players because even the new ones are pushing hard for a place. It’s a good development for us, but it would give us serious headache to pick the right squad for the country but that is what we want that we have options.”

Keshi has kept faith with the core of the team who won a third Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa last year, but several others outside this group have been pushing for consideration recently.

And the likes of Victor Anichebe and Osaze Odemwingie could well earn a recall, Nigeria are to submit a 30-man provisional squad for the World Cup latest May 13.

The Eagles capped four players, namely Leon Balogun, Ramon Azeez, Michael Uchebo and Imoh Ezekiel, in last week’s friendly against Mexico.
