Shola Ameobi Learns World Cup Fate

6 years ago

Nigeria boss Stephen Keshi has left it late in naming his final 23 man World Cup squad, but the good news for Shola Ameobi is that he has made the final cut.

Only ten days before the tournament begins, Shola has been named in the squad alongside other Premier League strikers Victor Moses and Peter Odemwingie.

Also in the squad are Chelsea’s John Obi Mikel, as well as Middlesbrough’s Kenneth Omeruo and Joseph Yobo of Norwich.

It is Nigeria’s fifth appearance in the final stages and in Brazil they will face Iran, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Lionel Messi’s Argentina.

Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has named his 23-man squad players for the Fifa World Cup in Brazil.

While Argentina look to be a sure thing to go through, Shola and Nigeria look to have a fighting chance of joining them.
