Nigeria are pooled in the same group as Argentina, Iceland and Croatia in a section considered as the toughest but Mikel insisted just as they navigated through a hard qualification series, they would come out unscathed "I believe we can beat Argentina, Croatia and Iceland, if we really want it", Mikel said on a special World Cup documentary.

Okala, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Enugu, said the selected as dedicated players that would do the country proud.

He noted that Rohr had taken the bull by the horn by ensuring that dedicated and strong legs were marshalled out to represent Nigeria at the World finals in Russian Federation.

"I am ready to take this great opportunity and do my very best to justify my inclusion".

A sports journalist with TVC, Solomon Ajusiogu, said the list represented the best collection of the Eagles so far, adding that the coach was magnanimous enough to give some players a chance to prove themselves.

"I was overwhelmed with joy when I heard that Nwankwo, made the list".

"At the end of the day, you never know what would happen because when they go out for trials, players you don't even think that would impress would eventually go there and perform well and make the team".
