World Cup 2018 Russia

The Nigeria 2018 World Cup squad were neither here nor there. The only thing they had going for them was their beautiful jersey that became the talk of the town. Aside from that, the performance of the Nigeria World Cup 2018 squad was abysmal.

Two losses and just one win weren’t enough to take the 2018 Super Eagles team out of the group stage. In all, the Nigerian team scored just three goals.

German football manager, Gernot Rohr led the Nigerian national team to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
