FIFA World Cup 2014: Nigeria 23 Man Squad

Nigeria have announced their 23 man squad to travel to Brazil for FIFA World Cup 2014.

Coach Stephen Keshi has selected a decent looking squad, with a somewhat surprise inclusion for Newcastle United’s 32 year old forward Shola Ameobi, who travels to his first World Cup with Nigeria.

Nigeria will be hoping to exceed their best-ever performances of reaching the Round of 16 in 1994 and 1998 from a group that looks achievable for them. Group F also features Argentina, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Iran.
