The FIFA 2018 World Cup is finally here!! The wait is finally over. Teams from all participating countries have arrived Russia ahead of the D-day. The world cup will start very soon and the excitement is real.
The Nigeria Super Eagles team left for Russia earlier this week fashionable set for the match. The team’s first match is against Croatia on Saturday.
Gernot Rohr, the head coach of the team says more than being fashionable, the Super Eagles are focused on getting prepared for their first match on Saturday.
“We are happy to be here after working so hard. But we continue to work and we continue to be humble and we will be ready for Croatia because the first game, it is a very important game, not the clothes,”
In the meantime, the Federal Government of Nigeria has appealed to Nigerians going for the FIFA 2018 World Cup not to escape during and after the event.
“What we have done is to ensure that every group traveling, the list must be submitted to NAPTIP and you cannot travel without clearance. In the past few days, NAPTIP has made huge arrest of people who’re running flaw of the rules of trafficking. This has confirmed our fears that there are so many people who are not traveling to support the Super Eagles. Rather they have intention on embarrassing the country in Russia”
