Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr will have a difficult task pruning his 30-man list to the final 23, particularly in the defence, and Kenneth Omeruo is determined to make the cut.
The Chelsea FC defender wrapped up a season-long loan deal to Turkish Super Lig side Kasimpasa where he said he’s put in more work than he ever did in his career.
Nigeria’s world cup preparation commences on Tuesday and the defender told Brila.net he expects to arrive early on the same day.
The 2013 African Cup of Nations winner, who has 34 caps including four appearances at the 2014 world cup under his belt, will fight for places against some younger player, but said he’s unperturbed.
‘ I’m sure I won’t make the decision for the Coach, but I will fight for a place against some very good players,’ he stated.
