The Super Eagles players took to Twitter and uploaded photos of their arrival in Russian Federation.

Today, Salisu Yusuf's side joined several other nations in making the trip to the Russian Federation for the month-long showpiece, with Nigeria looking ahead to their first game against Croatia in Group D on 16 June.

Hazard made the prediction on a diagram published on his Instagram page stating: "This is my prediction on 2018 World Cup!".

The Super Eagles defeated Argentina 4-2 the last time the two sides met in a friendly encounter and Mascherano is wary of the threat posed by the athletic Nigerian side.

He tipped Belgium to beat Poland in the round of 16, overcome Brazil in the quarter-final and go past France in the semi-finals.

Their kit has already proved to be a ubiquitous triumph, but Nigeria have just gone and rammed home the fact that they will, without doubt, be the best-dressed nation at the 2018 World Cup by unveiling their travelling suits.

7 - Ahmed Musa, scorer of Nigeria's only World Cup brace to date, achieved this feat wearing the number 7 jersey (Nigeria vs. Argentina, 2014).

Hazard scored the winning goal from the penalty spot as Chelsea pipped Manchester United in the 2018 Emirates FA Cup final. "And that's when teams like ours suffer the most - in disorder".
