Super Eagles head coach Stephen Keshi has admitted he face selection headache ahead of Nigeria’s fifth appearance at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
The former Mali and Togo tactician however sees the situation as a positive development for the national team, but hopes to call up the right players for the football showpiece.
Keshi is expected to name his 30-man provisional squad before May 13th, ahead of FIFA’s June deadline.
He said: “It’s going to be very difficult because Nigeria is blessed with a lot of good players,” said Keshi.
“I just pray we pick the right players because even the new ones are pushing hard for a place. It’s a good development for us, but it would give us serious headache to pick the right squad for the country but that is what we want that we have options.”
Nigeria has been pitted against favourites Argentina, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Iran in Group F of the 20th FIFA World Cup.
