"It's tough because we can't take all the 30 players to the World Cup", team spokesman Toyin Ibitoye told BBC Sport.

Rohr said: "It is unfortunate that [Moses] Simon won't be able to make it to the World Cup because of his injury".

"We just look forward to it and then go all the way for it, every game is very important".

Moses Simon will miss the World Cup due to injury, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has confirmed.

"This is the first time we're going to a competition like this with no issues of money, bonuses".

Rohr's side were the first African team to qualify for the showpiece in Russian Federation, and began their preparations for the showpiece with a 1-1 draw against DR Congo. "The team and the coaching staff are in high spirits and are highly motivated to soar above their opponents at the World Cup".

On Monday, the three-time African champions lock horns with DR Congo before they confront England on June 2 and Czech Republic four days later.

The Coach and Captain of the team, Gernot Rohr and Mikel Obi respectively, who spoke briefly at the event promised to do their best to win the cup.

One of the lucky winners, Victor Sose, expressing his delight, said, "I am super happy to have won this prize on this night celebrating the Super Eagles".

From there, the side will fly to Austria for an eight-day training camp before heading to Russian Federation.
