Nigeria's major group opponents at the New Zealand 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup, Brazil, have named a very strong squad for the competition.
FIFA released the confirmed squads for all 24 participating teams on Thursday, with the tournament holding from 30 May to 20 June.
The big names in the Brazil squad include Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira and Kenedy, the Fluminese forward who has been strongly linked with English Premier League champions Chelsea.
Completesportsnigeria.com reports that Pereira was on Tuesday named United's Young Player of the Year after playing a key role in their U-21s winning the U-21 Premier League title. He also got involved in the senior team, making a few cameos after signing a new contract and earning Louis van Gaal's trust.
Kenedy has been impressive for Fluminense this season and has been tipped to be the next big thing out of Brazil.
The squad also includes Real Madrid forward Jean Carlos and Marseille midfielder Alef. Seventeen of the squad play in Brazil, for the likes of traditional big sides Santos, Flamengo and Cruzeiro.
Along with Brazil, the Flying Eagles will also face Hungary and Korea in Group E.
