Hull midfielder Aluko targets late Nigeria World Cup run

Hull City midfielder Sone Aluko is making a late pitch for Nigeria's World Cup squad.

Now fit again after overcoming an Achilles problem, Aluko has set his sights keeping the Tigers in the Premier League and putting himself in contention for Brazil.

"I believe I do have a chance of making the World Cup squad, even though I have been out of the squad for a long time," he told BBC Sport.

"Until the 'Big Boss' (Stephen Keshi) decides the team then many players will believe they still have a chance and I'm no different, we all want to be in Brazil playing.

"There's enough time and matches, which hopefully should be enough to break into the Super Eagles team again.

"More importantly really, my main focus is to recapture my form and end the season strongly with Hull.

"As long as I keep playing well and my club keep winning, I'll have strong hopes."
