Nigeria name uncapped strikers for World Cup

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.

"I am delighted that at least three home-based players namely; Dele Ajiboye, Junior Lokosa and Ikechukwu Ezenwa made the provisional list and my guts tells me Lokosa will make the 23-man final list". I will not be surprised if Rohr sticks with those he has been working with.

"As we speak, the coaches are putting finishing touches to the provisional list from which our final squad for the World Cup will be released."I know that a lot of extensive work has been done".

The squad will further train together under the watchful eyes of Rohr before traveling to London for a friendly match with England on June 2, 2018.

Godwin Bamigboye, the Chairman, FCT Football Coaches Association said the inclusion of the country's biggest goal contributors in the list was a welcome development.

Erdogan called Israel a terrorist state
In an interview with BBC Arabic on Sunday, Erdogan said that Israel is "sowing fear and pushing" the Middle Eastern "region to war".

Other forwards that made the list include: Moses Simon, Victor Moses, Alex Iwobi, Odion Ighalo, Ahmed Musa and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Emmanuel Amakiri, the proprietor of Amakson Football Academy said he wasn't completely satisfied with the list, adding that the goalkeeping and defence departments still looked weak.

Paying the players their allowances as at when due can propel the players to give their best at the World Cup.

Rohr is expected to make his final cuts to the squad after the England match, needing to drop seven players before travelling to Russian Federation with his final 23.
