No Elderson Echiéjilé... It's about time.

Echiejile is injured just like Moses, when this 2 are well and fit they should rejoin the squad. Echiejile is the only left footer we have in our squad. so we can not just dump him except we find another natural left back. Echiejile may have lost pace going forward but he is still a good defender.

I am glad about Uzoho's inclusion. I can see him displacing Daniel Akpeyi. We still need Enyeama back for his world cup experience. I don't think Enyeama should return as automatic number, he should be made to fight for his place and it must be made clear that Mikel remains captain after he returns. But I think for the world cup the 3 likely goalkeepers should be Enyeama, Uzoho and Ezenwa.

Defenders chosen are quite good. But Omeruo should be in the squad for his world cup experience and yet he is also young. All our defenders at the moment have not been to the world cup. Omeruo falls within the age bracket and yet he has been to world cup. He should be considered.

Midfielders: Uche Agbo should have been listed as a midfielder while Nwakali drops to standby. I don't think Nwakali is ready for world cup. Omeruo should take his place. Mikel Agu also seems very nervous, they should consider changing Mikel Agu for an attacking midfielder because right now only Iwobi is the natural attacking midfielder.

Forward: I still think the strike force is very blunt. Nwakaeme and Iheanacho are not among our best strikers out there. I guess they deserve a chance before subbing them but their deficiencies will show against argentina. I am glad Ahmed Musa is there as a winger I like Musa for his world cup experience, speed, workrate.
