Russia 2018 World Cup Draw - Nigerian Today

A cross-section of football fans in Nigeria on Friday expressed satisfaction with the Russia 2018 World Cup draw, adding that Nigeria got “a fair deal’’.

Argentina coach, Jorge Sampaoli, has reacted to the 2018 World Cup draw, which will see his team facing Nigeria, Iceland and Croatia in the group stage of the competition.

The 2018 tournament takes place in 12 stadiums across Russia between 14 June and 15 July, 2018.
