Leicester City defensive midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is sure he will be ready to play his part in Nigeria’s campaign in the 2018 World Cup.
The former Genk ace was named in Gernot Rohr’s preliminary squad for the tournament despite carrying an injury but Ndidi said that he would recover in time to feature if picked.
“I feel pretty good, much better,” he revealed to Futbalgalore.com.
“I am grateful to Gernot Rohr for trusting me and when I’m asked to play I’ll do my best as I have done all year.
“I’m optimistic, I’m very hopeful, very strong. I’ve always had difficult moments and have overcome them and [this injury] has been one more.
“The national team have looked after me well and now I have no problem as I’m with the group and 100% ready.”
“I’m very happy to be with the team. I always said it would be an honour to be with the best national team in history,” he added.
Meanwhile Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr has given an update on Ndidi who has been training separately since the team resumed training for the World Cup.
“We have a programme to do until tomorrow, Ndidi will not play in the Port Harcourt game against DR Congo, but we are trying to prepare him for the London game versus England.
“We also have a special programme for Victor Moses, who also needed some time out.”
