Former Nigeria captain and one of Nigeria’s greatest goalkeepers, Vincent Enyeama believes that the present Super Eagles squad has the quality to rule the world.

Enyeama is confident that with the fantastic players at the disposal of Coach Gernot Rohr, the Super Eagles would soon ‘conquer everyone.’

This prediction came after the team’s Franco-German head coach released his 24-man squad list in preparations for the AFCON qualifying doubleheader slated for later this month.

The Franco-German coach extended first time invitations to the duo of Heracles Almelo striker Cyriel Dessers and FC Cologne’s fullback Kingsley Ehizibue.

25-year-old Dessers is currently the top scorer in Netherland’s top division with 15 goals in 25 appearances for Heracles Almelo. While 24-year-old Ehizibue has been a super regular for Die Geißböcke in the Bundesliga this featuring 21 times this season.

Getafe’s Oghenekaro Etebo, who missed Nigeria’s first two qualifiers against the Benin Republic and Lesotho and Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho also made the team and Enyeama believes the Rohr has a killer squad.

Other names on the list include the regulars like Alex Iwobi, Wilfred Ndidi, William Troost Ekong, and Ahmed Musa.

With Dessers inclusion, Nigeria now has one of the best attacks in Africa. The Super Eagles are currently blessed with the likes of Lille’s Victor Osimhen, Villarreal’s Samuel Chukwueze, and the rejuvenated Kelechi Iheanacho of Leicester City.

“This is a very good team. This generation can conquer everyone.”  Enyeama, tweeted
