Nigeria's three future-stars - who are they?

Nigeria Fans

Nigeria arrived in Brazil on Tuesday along with three players who must be labelled as future-stars - including a pair of Chelsea starlets.

The African champions touched down in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Tuesday. The Super-Eagles will be kicking off their World Cup against Iran on Monday as the world of football watches on to find out which players are the next big thing. 

Nigeria will be touted as Africa's best chance of progressing through the tournament and they will be aided by these three stars who look to have a future ahead of them.

Kenneth Omeruo

The young Chelsea defender joined the Premier League outfit from Standard Liege in 2012. The young 20-year-old has impressed at Chelsea but was sent out on loan to gain more first team experiences at Middlesbrough. The Nigerian clocked up 14-appearances for the Championship club and was considered a prodigy after his loan-spell. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho who has put his undoubted faith in the young defender will watch with content as he sees his youngster come up against one of the finest attacking line-ups in world football, Argentina. Chelsea have put a lot of faith in the 6"1 central defender, the powerful Omeruo will want to show his club what he can do.

Victor Moses

Victor Moses has been in and around the Premier League for a while now; yet we are still waiting to see the best of the Chelsea man. Moses spent last season on loan to fellow title seekers, Liverpool. However, the Nigerian's opportunities of first-team football were limited due to the superb performances of Raheem Sterling. The former Wigan Athletic winger has joined up with the Super-Eagles at the World Cup, ready to show off his talent. Moses has been gifted with raw pace and power, exactly what a winger requires. He has been blessed with quick feet that make him every defenders nightmare; with an eye for goal, Moses has potential to prove doubters wrong as he begins to state a claim for first-team football at Chelsea next season. Could the World Cup be the beginning of a new Victor Moses?

Ahmed Musa

A relatively unknown quantity to some in the Russia league, Musa is a striker who can also be deployed as a wide man. He is currently playing for Russian giants CSKA Moscow. Recognised by several Premier League outfits, Musa has yet to make the big move to England in spite of his impressive talent. The 21-year-old has already contributed 19 goals to the Russian league since joining in 2012 from Dutch club VVV-Venlo. It's Musa's confidence with the ball at his feet that makes him an exciting prospect; unafraid of running at defenders, Musa will be looking to get on the ball as much as possible at the World Cup. Don't be decieved my his small stature as the Nigerian possesses great strength to battle past defenders, with a key eye for assists, Musa has the chance to become a Nigerian hero this summer.
