Super Eagles land in Russian Federation

Their kit has already proved to be a ubiquitous triumph, but Nigeria have just gone and rammed home the fact that they will, without doubt, be the best-dressed nation at the 2018 World Cup by unveiling their travelling suits.

The only number to have started all five group stage opening games for Nigeria: Peter Rufai (1994, 98), Ike Shorunmu (2002), Vincent Enyeama (2010, 14).

The Nigerian team who pulled off a remarkable unbeaten qualification run to the World Cup in Russian Federation, have arguably been the most hyped African nation going to Russian Federation.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Croatia who are the Super Eagles of Nigeria first opponents at the 2018 FIFA World Cup named their first eleven squad that will face Nigeria on Saturday, June 16.

The soft spoken administrator concluded by stating his happiness with how the preparation for the World Cup has gone as he vowed that the federation would continue to throw their weight behind the team to ensure they deliver on their mandate as the NFF board.

Calling on Nigerians to get behind the Super Eagles, he said, "We are using this medium to call on Nigerians to get behind the team and those spreading rumours regarding the welfare of the team should make enquiry".

The outfits caused quite a stir on social media, with captain Jon Obi-Mikel and Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi sharing pictures of their new attire.
