Confident Super Eagles land in Essentuki for World Cup

Despite the slim chances of Nigeria winning the world cup, the Super Eagles have already won the hearts of many football fans all over the world through their attractive world cup kit.

The Eagles chartered flight from Austria was delayed and they only landed about 11 pm local time at the Mirealnye Vody Airport, about an hour after they were originally expected to touch down.

While the majority of squads have jetted to Eastern Europe in their designer suits, obviously Nigeria were never going to follow the mold and made sure their travel attire stood out from the rest of the pack.

The Super Eagles flew out of their Avita Resort in Bad Tatzmannsdorf, Austria, to Russian Federation on Monday for the 21st FIFA World Cup finals - Nigeria's sixth appearance in seven finals since making a memorable debut in the 1994.
