Former Nigeria striker, Victor Ezeji, has urged Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr, to include Crotone striker Simeone Nwankwo and Kano Pillars’ Junior Lokosa, in his 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Both players made their debuts in their 1-1 draw against Democratic Republic of Congo in a friendly on Monday in Port Harcourt.

The two debutants gave a good account of themselves, especially Simy who went close on several occasions and hit the post.
