Facts about Super Eagles' World Cup jersey numbers

Super Eagles senior official Pascal Patrick confirmed the arrival of the Super Eagles of Nigeria in Russian Federation to NAIJ.com stressing that the players are ready to make Nigerians proud.

Players and officials of the Nigerian national football team arrive at Mineralnye Vody International Airport on June 11, 2018, ahead of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup football tournament.

Nigeria have already gone and wrapped up this World Cup on style points, and at an absolute canter.

The Super Eagles have however not returned impressive results in their warm up games, losing matches against Serbia, England and the Czech Republic.

A delegation of 23 players and technical and administrative staff flew by executive jet from Vienna to Essentuki Airport in South West Russia on Monday, arriving at a few minutes after 10pm.


They donned white hats with green ribbons to complement the elegant design on their white garments.

Nigeria plays against Argentina, Iceland and Croatia in Group D.

John Obi Mikel and his colleagues will be hoping to get past the Round of 16 - the country's best finish ever in the championship's history.

But you'll have to prepare some more great banter because we're bringing you another story on Nigeria and their fashion - though this time it's not their kits.
