Super Eagles arrive Russian Federation for 2018 World Cup campaign

The Super Eagles have settled down at their Sanatorium Istochnik Hotel, Essentuki team base camp at the 2018 World Cup and had their first training (open session) on Tuesday from 5pm Russian time.

Croatia arrived in Russian Federation on Monday.

The song, tittled "Dem Go Hear Am" produced by Pheelz, is powered by Aiteo, a main sponsor of the Super Eagles for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
