Kanu said he expects the team to perform well at the World Cup.

He told, ”As the years go by we keep growing and planning, getting more experience. I believe we have the best young players in the World Cup, in terms of age.

”They are doing well. The hunger is there and this is the first time that they have a peaceful camp, in terms of everything [being] well organized.

”[Odion] Ighalo, Alex Iwobi. There is a lot of them that you can mention. We don’t really call them star players but all round we believe they are a good team.”
