Kayode: I’m Gutted Missing Out On Eagles’ 30-Man Provisional W/Cup List

By Johnny Edward:
Olanrewaju is gutted to have been left out of Nigeria’s 30 man provisional squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Kayode who has made three international appearances for Nigeria was overlooked by Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr who handed maiden call-ups to Crotone’s Simy Nwankwo and Junior Lokosa from Kano Pillars at the expense of the Manchester City striker and the duo of Henry Onyekuru and Brown Ideye.

“I’ve been in the team for three games. I’m gutted to be missing out,” Kayode opened up in a chat with CSN.

The 25 year old however remains confident that the three-time African champions can still do well in Russia.

“But we’ve got a strong side, so we’ve got a really good chance.

“Our first game is massive. If we can win it, we have got a big chance of going to the next round.”

Kayode signed a six-month loan deal at Shakhtar Donetsk in January from Manchester City and has scored two goals in four league appearances for Shakhtar Donetsk

The 25 year old clinched the Ukrainian league title and the Cup in his short stint at the club.
