The Super Eagles have arrived in Russia ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The players and coaches landed in their Essentuki base late on Monday night at about 11pm Nigerian time.

Their arrival time was affected by slight delays in their flight from Austria, where they had been training following their friendly matches.

Gernot Rohr’s men are expected to have their first training session following their arrival on Tuesday.

They are the last team in Group D to arrive in Russia for the tournament, with Argentina and Iceland jetting in on Saturday.

Nigeria will take on Croatia in their opening Group D fixture on Saturday at the Kaliningrad Stadium.
