Iwobi proved the hero for Nigeria last October, when his goal against Zambia secured a 1-0 win for the Super Eagles and booked their berth at a third consecutive finals.

Super Eagles' attacker, Alex Iwobi has said he's fully ready to lead Nigeria to World Cup glory in Russian Federation because he has profited a lot from training and playing with world-class footballers in Arsenal, AOIFootball.com reports.

Nigeria will play Croatia in her first match before taking on debutants Iceland and two-time World Cup winners Argentina in Group D as they bid to become the first African side to reach the semi-finals of the Mundial. It should be one at a time.

The Super Eagles will begin their World Cup warm-up campaign with a home tie against Congo DR on Sunday, May 27 before heading to Wembley to keep a date with England on Saturday, June 2, at Wembley stadium.

"Having showcased the best of moments of the FIFA World Cup moments since 2006, this year's edition promises to be a spectacle of fun and excitement", he said.
