Manchester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, is in coach Manu Garba’s 21-man list of players who will wear the nation’s colours at this year’s FIFA U-20 World Cup finals in New Zealand.

The 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup MVP is joined by skipper Musa Muhammed and fans’ favourite Taiwo Awoniyi in the squad.

Garba has also included Spain-based Success Isaac, Enyimba’s midfielder Kingsley Sokari, defence stalwarts Wilfred Ndidi and Izu Omego, and Belgium-based forward Moses Simon.

Attack-minded defender Chidiebere Nwakali, who shone at the U-17 World Cup, as well as midfielder Akinjide Idowu and goalkeeper Joshua Enaholo are also going to New Zealand.

Nigeria will play Brazil in their first match in New Plymouth on June 1, before other Group E games against North Korea and Hungary in the same city.
