Super Eagles arrive Volgograd, set for Iceland clash

The Super Eagles of Nigeria have landed Volgograd ahead of Friday’s World Cup clash against Iceland.

The team’s players and officials departed base camp in Essentuki on Thursday morning and arrived Hampton-by-Hilton Volgograd Hotel around 1pm.

The Gernot Rohr-led side lost 2-0 to Croatia in their opening group game on Saturday, June 16 at the Kaliningard Stadium.

The three-time African Champions will square up against Iceland on Friday at the Volgograd Arena – the encounter that seems to be a must win for the Eagles if they want to progress into the round of sixteen.

The Iceland clash will be the second meeting between both sides: they have played once in a friendly in 1981 with Nigeria losing 3-0.

Croatia top Group D with three points ahead of Argentina and Iceland, who have one point each after playing out a 1-1 draw in round 1.
