#WorldCupWith360nobs: Nigerian Coach Announces 30-Man Provisional Squad For Russia 2018

Nigeria Coach Gernot Rohr has named a provisional 30-man squad ahead of the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup due in Russia next month.

Victor Moses, Alex Iwobi and Ahmed Musa were in Nigeria's provisional World Cup squad on Monday, as was the uncapped Simeon Nwankwo, a 1.98-meter (6-foot-6) striker with Italian club Crotone. One of them was an overhead kick against Juventus. Lokosa is the only home-based outfield player in the squad, which has no room for Al Ahli's Junior Ajayi or Everton's Henry Onyekuru.
