Nigeria head coach Stephen Keshi has told Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi he's going to Brazil.

The veteran striker scored a superb goal and set up another as Nigeria drew 2-2 with Italy in a friendly at Fulham's Craven Cottage on Monday.

Keshi said: "This is the fifth or sixth time I'm taking the same team to play a game. Most of them are going to be there (in Brazil), if there's no injuries. I pray there's no injuries. "
