Super Eagles’ travel outfit that was made by a local designer caused quite a stir on social media.
Nigeria’s team arrived in Russia wearing traditional Nigerian dress, a knee-length garment with a green eagle embroidered into the fabric combined with matching hat and white slip-on shoes.
The team landed in Mineralnye Vody, close to the Georgian border in the far south of the country, in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Many fans on social media have already handed the Super Eagles a win in the World Cup fashion stakes.
Nigeria will take on Croatia on Saturday in their opening Group D fixture at the Kaliningrad Stadium.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup will take place from June 14 to July 15.
