The Super Eagles arrived at Mineralnye Vody International Airport on Monday night for their sixth World Cup appearance and their opener will be against Croatia on Saturday, June 16 at the Kaliningrad Stadium (8.00pm in Nigeria).
Nigeria who is the first African team to qualify for the 21st World Cup have been zoned in Group D alongside Argentina, Iceland, and Croatia.
However, their form has been a source of concern as they failed to win any of their four international friendlies. Their last victory was against Poland on March 23.
The Super Eagles’ hotel is the Sanatorium Istochnik although they will prepare for their matches at the Essentuki arena.
Nigeria faces debutants Iceland in Volgograd before their clash with Argentina on June 26 in Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg.
John Obi Mikel and his teammates will be hoping to get past the Round of 16 which has always been Nigeria’s best finish ever in the World Cup history.
