On-fire Junior Lokosa is happy to gatecrash Nigeria’s provisional squad for the 2018 World Cup and is ready to fight for a place in the final 23-man squad.
The 24-year-old was named by Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr in a 30-man squad to justify themselves for 23 places available for Russia and the Kano Pillars talisman is grateful for his calling but insists he will fight for his place in the squad.
“It’s amazing to be in the national team. I’m happy for that and I’m coming to give my best and work hard to make the team,” he told Futbalgalore.com
Lokosa, whose versatility in attack allows him to play on either sides of the wings and also leads the attack, has bagged 18 league goals for Pillars in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
