Star of the 2013 U17 World cup Kelechi Iheanacho is in line for a place in the Nigerian squad for the 2014 World Cup.
Iheanacho is in Abuja training with the Nigeria squad as they prepare for the African Nations Championship (CHAN) in South Africa.
Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi says Ihenancho and the other members of that Under-17 side that triumphed in the UAE could earn their places in the Super Eagles squad in Brazil.
ÔÇ£Everything depends on them. If they can prove themselves and show that they can cut it at this level, then we will take it up from there,ÔÇØ he told supersport.com.
ÔÇ£The Chan is a good opportunity for the home-based players to exhibit themselves before the World Cup. It will boost their confidence so we will see what happens,ÔÇØ
Reports in local media suggest that Iheanacho has sealed a move to English Premiership giants Manchester City.
