Former Zimbabwe striker, Benjani Nwaruwari, has said the trio of John Mikel Obi, Alex Iwobi and Victor Moses, need to play a key role if Nigeria will go far in the 2018 World Cup.
Captain Mikel scored crucial goals against African giants Algeria and Cameroon, while Chelsea wing-back Moses netted four times in four qualifying games.
Iwobi also finished the campaign with two goals, including the decisive winning goal against Zambia.
“The Super Eagles have a lot of good players in their team but I believe Mikel, Iwobi and Moses are the most important players in the side,” Benjani told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“They will be crucial to whatever Nigeria achieve in Russia and it will important for the coach (Gernot Rohr) to get the best out of them.
“If they hit top form in Russia, then I believe the Super Eagles will go far in the competition.”
