Vincent Enyeama has said he believes the class of Mikel Obi,
Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike will propel Nigeria to glory at Brazil 2014.

The African champions have qualified for their fifth World Cup
and Enyeama has picked several players led by Chelsea midfielder Mikel to get the
team to shine in Brazil next year.

“I pray that Mikel Obi will be in his best shape and (Victor)
Moses plus Emenike will all be in their true elements by the time the World Cup
will start in Brazil,” Enyeama told Sporting Life in an interview.

“These three men are those that we are banking on because if
they are in top shape, they will help us to get a rhythm and also they make
things happen. They make the difference in important matches.” 
Emenike has been the Eagles reliable goals machine, while Mikel and Moses have brought their quality to bear on the team since Nigeria won a third AFCON in South Africa in February.

The Lille goalkeeper also singled out up and coming Lazio
youngster Ogenyi Onazi, who has been on superb form lately.

“Onazi is also coming up greatly,” remarked the stand-in Eagles
skipper, who has also been on great form for title-chasing Lille in the French Ligue 1 this season.

“I pray that they all stay injury-free and are in top shape
ahead of the World Cup.”

Brazil 2014 will be Enyeama’s third World Cup after he took his
chance at the 2002 World Cup group game against England.
