More than a hundred members of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club have departed Moscow for Volgograd by train after being aided by the Nigerian consulate in sorting out travel difficulties, including immigration issues on transit borders. The President-General of the NFSC assured that the Super Eagles will get a vital loud support in today’s second Russia 2018 FIFA World Group D match against Iceland.
The supporters were initially held up in Moscow and were very upset decrying a lack of support from the NFF as they ran into hitches traveling to the teams match venues.
Only very few supporters club members made it to Kaliningrad from Moscow for Nigeria’s first match on June 16 against Croatia which they lost 2-0. They had arrived in Moscow, in batches, from different parts of the world but met dead end because of the challenging Russian transportation network.
“We have made adequate arrangements for a 24-hour trip to Volgograd and we believe the Eagles will win the game,” told Completesportsnigeria.com in Russia. “They will get massive supports in Volgograd.
“The team made mistakes against Croatia, and we are aware that coach Gernot Rohr has corrected the errors.
“We are begging and appealing to every Nigerian to pray for the team because they still have what it takes to beat Iceland and Argentina to qualify for the next round.”
