Mayor of Essentuki welcomes Super Eagles to Russian Federation

That Nigeria face Argentina again is one of the more remarkable statistics to come out of this tournament - the Super Eagles have now appeared in six previous World Cup finals and will meet the South Americans for the fifth time.

At the same time, he noted that if the Nigerians are rooting for their team in other places, "we will of course advise them where the chicken can be bought".

The British news outfit, The Sun, also wrote: "Nigeria once again won the fashion stakes at this year's World Cup with their incredible travel outfit".

Rohr's side open their 2018 campaign against Croatia on Saturday‚ before what could be a vital clash with Iceland on June 22.

"It's going to be tough, but we know how we play and how we want to play, so we are going to have to continue playing that way". "We are ready to satisfy the most eccentric inquiries".

"For the FIFA Football World Cup, we are proud that your national team chose our city and our training ground and I assure you that you will not regret it", Mr Nekristov said.

"I love Nigeria and I would have been happy to play for the country".

"Nigeria of course are among the favourites", Mikel laughed.

The Super Eagles suffered three straight defeats against Serbia, England and Czech Republic in friendlies ahead of the World Cup, but Rohr says the results are not as important as the objectives behind the games.
