World Cup Nigeria Super Eagles Gernot Rohr team selection

Nigeria 6

Following the announcement of Nigeria's 2018 FIFA World Cup squad numbers, KwesèESPN compiled 10 interesting facts about the Super Eagles' jerseys.

The Super Eagles are drawn in group D alongside Croatia (who they face on Saturday), Iceland and Argentina.

But they have a tough first round pool against giants Argentina‚ a very good Iceland side and a Croatian team that has traditionally been rugged and hard to beat.

"We have our team in our head already, but we will wait until the last moment to publish the team that will start the game", Rohr told the media on Wednesday.

"We have learnt a lot going into this tournament and the underdog tag is just well and okay for us".

Rohr feels that the team is now tactically ready for that first game, saying: "We know what we want to do".

Indeed, Nigeria set out for their World Cup base after leaving their pre-tournament training camp in Austria on Monday and never has a football entourage looked this gosh-darn dapper...

At each match, Russians will be up to 15,000 people, another 10,000 seats will be proportionally taken by fans from countries whose teams are playing at the World Cup, and the remaining 10,000 will be given to citizens of other countries.

Mikel John Obi (Tianjin Teda), Ogenyi Onazi (Trabzonspor), John Ogu (Hapoel Be'er Sheva), Joel Obi (Torino, Italy), Wilfred Ndidi (Leicester City), and Oghenekaro Etebo (Las Palmas) are in the midfield.
