NPFL Hotshot Lokosa Excluded From World Cup Provisional Squad, Set For Montpellier Trials

NPFL Hotshot Lokosa Excluded From World Cup Provisional Squad, Set For Montpellier Trials

By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:

Nigerian Professional Football League leading goal scorer Junior Lokosa has been excluded from the Super Eagles 35-man World Cup list, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

CSN findings revealed that the Nigeria Football Federation has completed the documentations of the players who are heading to the World Cup camp of the Super Eagles in Austria and Lokosa is not included.

“Nobody as at today has forwarded Lokosa’s name for invitation for the World Cup, so I don’t know how he will make the team,” a high-level source told CSN on Friday.
“I doubt if he is being considered for the Super Eagles team at all. We have applied for visas for Austria and as you can see, he is not among those going for interview today.”

Meanwhile, the Kano Pillars striker, who has scored 16 goals in the first half of the NPFL season, is expected to jet out on trials with Montpellier in France next week.

      I think, my name is missing there. Imoh Sunday

    • @Bestsports, you didn’t add Moses Simon & I don’t think Nwaekeme should or would be on that list.

      Rohr should try out this Lokosa guy. But sha, the way CSN is hyping him, I wonder why he did not make the last CHAN team in Morocco.

      • Chairmanfemi 3 years ago

        Spot on @my own Kel. I wander how someone will include Nwakaeme on that list

    • joshua 3 years ago

    That nwakeme guy ehn no suppose enter this team again… I hope the best legs will be called on..

  • fiyesimi 3 years ago

    But nwakeme has scored 17 goals in all competetionshe is nigeria highest scoring center forward,so i think he deserves 1 more opportunity against congo,you can’t judge him cos of the 1 game against algeria,nevertheless i think junior lokosa deserves a chance to prove himself,he has more quality than some nigeria strikers in europe,but we all know why rohr won’t pick him cos he plays in NPFL.

  • @bestsport u try e be like say av work wit GR,
    anyway i disagree on nwakeme

  • your list is 95% balance as mine but only d last two guys shld feature Simon moses and jnr Ajayi also I wld have preffered Dele alampasu to akpeyi but its like we need read the mind of RoHr on his selection. we wld have one last slot for a bad ass striker to go.. so who will pick d last ticket..!?

  • Sunnyb 3 years ago

    Onyedikachi Franklin,judging by ur name I think u are right.i think u should exclude Balogun, Musa, Ighalo, and replace them with, Agu, Emenike, Uche uchembo, Gabriel Okechukwu all these are fine and better players.

  • ako amadi 3 years ago

    The problem now is to ensure there are no visa hitches for those selected, and that the list is submitted by FIFA’s deadline. The NFF is fond of sleeping over these matters

  • Moses simoh must be there and enyemar becouse our gokeper are not good enogh
