The defensive midfielder has enjoyed a meteoric rise over the last few years and will surely relish the prospect of starring in Brazil.

Having only broken into the side during the 2013 Cup of Nations, Onazi was injured before the Confederations Cup only a few months later. The fact that he was badly missed indicates just how important this young man is to the Super Eagles midfielder.

His energy and endeavour allow the lethargic Mikel to play his languid game, ensuring that the defence are protected and that the ball, if lost, is retrieved quickly.
