Super Eagles Land In Russia For World Cup

The Super Eagles of Nigeria have touched down in Russia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.


The players and their officials landed in their Essentuki base late on Monday night at around 11pm Nigerian time.

CSN learnt that the team’s flight from Austria was delayed which affected their arrival time.


Gernot Rohr’s men are expected to have their first training session following their arrival on Tuesday.

They are the last team in Group D to arrive in Russia for the mundial with Argentina and Iceland jetting in on Saturday.

Croatia arrived in Russia on Monday afternoon.

    Ride on boys, go make us proud, croatia, even though modric n kovakic r my men, but in this i pray u loose, bcos u meeting my darling super eagle.

  • Thank God for Journey Mercies!! Team work makes the dream work… Eagles will soar, time to put in work on the pitch and shutdown all the doubters!! #Eagleswillsoar

    Well,I hope they make us proud. In their first game against Croatians they must adopt 3-5-2 formation to stifle Modric and Rakitic. They must be cautious with set pieces because Croatians have a lot of tall players. I believe in this team.
    Good luck guys!

    The Nigerian team have in time past recorded injuries to important players at the eve of a major tournament, this is why I will refrain from casting doubts over the ability of the present team. I believe their full potential will be on display when hostilities begin on Saturday against the Croatians. The team spirit, unity, youthfulness and the hunger for glory that is visible in the team will see them going far, surpassing all imaginations. Go! Super Eagles, GO!!

  • We thank God for journey mercies. Finally we are in Russia. Bless be God.

    In terms of preparation, I believed that that this is the best I have seen in a very long long while. One thing is certain going forward,win or loss we cannot blame Nff – they have been fantastic thus far what is left is for SE and Gernot Rohr to perform.

    I so much believe in the current SE because it closest we come In terms of semblance of the class of 94&96 (though not in terms of depth and techniques) team. We can hurt any team if we play to our strength but we all know that SE can be so unpredictable and so, my advise would be to passionately support this team win or lose knowing it is the only thing we can do as fans.

    Russia here we come at last!the journey to Russia started against Swaziland couple of years ago.It has been a long but successful battle with joys of victories and pains of loses especially in test games.
    However,the proper games starts on Saturday and I’m optimistic that there’s light at end of the tunnel.The loses we had lately I believe were blessings in disguise as it has humbled the team and brought them to basis to learn and up their games to meet the challenges ahead.
    We thank God first for safe journey and also look up to the almighty to grant us victories just like he led David to conquer Goliath so also he shall lead the super eagles to conquer it colossal and higher ranked opponents in the world cup in Jesus name Amen!

    God help you. Coach please use the best legs and hands. I prefer this line up


    Troost, Omueoro, Ogu, Echeijile,

    Mikel Ndidi Etebo

    Iwobi. Ighalo Moses 

    Ihenanco,Simon  and Ebuehi can come as substitute

    • Mba! Onazi go start instead of Ndidi. I still no know why dem no take Lokosa.
      He better than Ighalo and Simmy combined.
      Instead of Iwobi, I go suggest Joel Obi.

      • Olawale 4 years ago

        Lol.. You are truly sura the tailor.. Onazi ahead of best tackle in the EPL Ndidi?? Wtf.. You better wake up..

May He helps us, put smile on our face and crown all their endeavours and effort during the preparation. Inshah Allah. Amiiiiiiiin.
