08 May 2014, 14:07Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Former Super Falcons coach, Rolandson Odeh has lauded Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi over the 30 man provisional list released ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Keshi on Tuesday announced 30 players who will begin training for the event that starts in June, including Joseph Yobo, Peter Odemwingie and Gabriel Reuben.

“I want to commend the coach, the list is laudable in the sense that he has been with the team for three years, and 80 percent of the players selected are those who won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2013, which means there is continuity.” Odeh told News24 Nigeria.

“Generally, I want to say the team selection is fair.”

“Let’s take things easy and give them a chance and see what the team can do in Brazil.”

The former Jigawa Golden Stars coach however said he expect Nigeria to surpass their second round record, to book a quarter final ticket.

“I’m praying for us to exceed the second round and qualify for the quarter final, I can beat my chest that we will qualify for the quarter final.”

Nigeria begin their World Cup campaign with a game against Iran on June 16.
