“The list is okay to me. It’s a good list and I’m happy with it” the Eagles captain told Sporting Sun.
Changchun Yatai of China star, Odion Ighalo saw his inclusion as an avenue to pay back Nigeria as he vowed to give his best for the country in Russia.
“I’m happy and privileged to be on the list and I promise to give my best. Honestly, it’s every player’s joy to be at the World Cup, so I believe my time is now and I will gracefully take the opportunity and represent the country with all I have got.
“The calibre of players we have right now know what it takes to succeed at the biggest stage so I’m very confident with those invited because the bulk of the squad were the guys that played the qualifiers even though so few are missing. I am confident the team will do well at the World Cup,” Ighalo concluded.
