Super Eagles ALLEGEDLY The Youngest Squad In Russia 2018 World Cup

World Cup


Nigeria’s Super Eagles are the youngest squad in Russia, at an average age of just 25 years and 337 days...and captain John Mikel Obi has urged the players to keep their nerves in check when they play Croatia on today, June 16th.

  


With more than 180 million fans back home roaring them, the African juggernauts enter this World Cup under pressure after a dismal record in recent tournaments. The Nigerians go into the Group D match-up in Kaliningrad — Russia’s bucolic European exclave more than 750 miles (1200 kilometres) from the chaos of Moscow — knowing they must improve on a run of just one win in their last 11 World Cup matches.

Mikel on Friday at the region’s gleaming new white-and-blue stadium said, "Super Eagles squad for the World Cup: they are the youngest at the tournament. It’s going to be very interesting because they like to keep the ball and so do we. We have a younger team so that might help us come the end of the game. The players are full of energy and have a lot to prove because they’ve not played on this stage before. Not a lot of players were here for the last World Cup but I think that might be a good thing. It’s important for them to control their emotions so we have to keep that in check as well.”

Although relatively inexperienced, Nigeria’s squad boasts a number of Premier League regulars, including Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi, Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi and Victor Moses of Chelsea.
