Super Eagles land in Volgograd ahead of battle with Iceland

Nigeria’s Super Eagles have arrived in the southern Russia town of Volgograd ahead of Friday’s FIFA World Cup Group D encounter against Iceland.

The Brazil 2014 Round of 16 berthers flew from their Essentuki base on Thursday morning and were settled in their Hampton-by-Hilton Volgograd Hotel abode a little after 1pm, according to the Nigeria Football Federation’s spokesman Ademola Olajire.

Focus has been on the encounter with the Euro 2016 quarter finalists since the loss to Croatia in Kaliningrad on Saturday.

A victory against the feisty Scandinavians will renew hope for a place in the knockout rounds while defeat would mean early and unflattering elimination from the quadrennial showpiece.
