Joel Obi eyes World Cup place with Nigeria

Torino midfielder Joel Obi has set his sights on being at the World Cup this summer with Nigeria.

The 26-year-old was omitted from the last tournament in Brazil, but took a step closer to realising that ambition last month by playing in the Super Eagles two friendlies.

Obi, currently on an injury-free run with Italian side Torino, has scored six goals in 24 appearances this season and is keen to continue that consistency run for his country.

"I've had a period when injury
robbed me of playing for my
country but with Russia in mind, it
would just be unbelievable to
finally be playing at a major
tournament for Nigeria" Obi concluded.
