Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho is looking forward to the 2018 FIFA World Cup which will be hosted by Russia.

This is according to the left-footed striker’s image right manager, Kingsley Ogbodo, who spoke on All Nigeria Soccer.

"Kelechi is eagerly waiting for the world cup so he can prove himself once again,'' Ogbodo said.

The Super Eagles are in Group D alongside South American giants Argentina and European sides Croatia, and Iceland.

Iheanacho is confident that Nigeria can go all the way and reach the final of the global competition.

"Every time we chat about Russia 2018, you could see the eagerness in him,” he said about the Leicester City striker.

"He says he can't wait for the Super Eagles to shock the world in Russia.

"Right now people think we are underdogs, but Kelechi's target is to play in the World Cup final.”
