The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has released a 30-man provisional list ahead of the Russia 2018 World Cup.

He said: "Ajayi came in for just about one minute". "It was the decision of the coach to give me the golden chance and I am focused on giving a good account of myself in the Super Eagles' camp".
"I also like the fact that he put the list to his chest and did not succumb to pressures before releasing it". "Yes, I believe we are going to do very well at the World Cup because we have the right caliber of players for the tournament", Kanu said.
"But what I would say is they should not base everything on sentiment, they should go out there with the best legs".
