The coach told NAN that he would not introduce new players to the squad but would rather focus on his current players.

“We have a great team that is committed, that I won’t trade for experimenting, this is the World Cup I can’t gamble on this.

“The competition is in April, so, I am hoping that on or before March, we can have enough time to prepare.

“We have confidence that with support from our fans, the Nigeria Football Federation and the Lagos state, we will make history.

“We are aware that this is the world stage and we don’t want to jeopardise our chances by not training early enough,” Ejo said.

Senegal and Nigeria will be representing Africa at the 2017 World Cup.
