Gernot Rohr has named skipper Mikel Obi, Chelsea star Victor Moses as well as central defenders Leon Balogun and William Troost-Ekong as the Super Eagles top stars going into the World Cup in Russia.
“We have a few very experienced players, such as our captain John Obi Mikel (Tianjin Teda, China). Our two central defenders William Troost-Ekong (Bursaspor, Turkey) and Leon Balogun (Mainz, Germany) are also very important to us,” the Eagles coach said in an interview with Soccer Laduma.
“We have players such as Victor Moses (Chelsea, England) and Alex Iwobi (Arsenal, England) – they are also very important for us.
“We have many young players, and everyone has a role to play in our team.
“But the most important leaders are our captain Mikel, the vice-captain Ogenyi Onazi, and Ahmed Musa also.”
