Hapoel Beer Sheva midfielder, John Ogu says he feels honoured and blessed to be considered good enough to be included in Nigeria's 30- man provisional World Cup list released by coach Gernot Rohr on Monday.

Moses, Iwobi and Musa lead a strong group of forwards in the 30-man squad that also includes Kelechi Iheanacho and Moses Simon.

Francis Uzoho, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Dele Ajiboye and Daniel Akpeyi are battling for the team's goal keeping spot.

The Defenders are Leon Balogun, William Troost-Ekong, Kenneth Omeruo, Brian Idowu, Elderson Echejile, Shehu Abdulahi, Ola Aina, Tyrone Ebuehi, Stephen Eze and Chidozie Awaziem.

Amaraizu, who is NLO's Director in-charge of the South-East, said that Rohr and his technical team must have taken pains and time to study the list over and over again. "It's my dream to play at World Cup in Russian Federation, but the coach has the right to pick whoever he thinks he needs at a particular point,".
