Russia 2018: Super Eagles Are the Youngest Squad In The World Cup

The Super Eagles of Nigeria has been revealed to have the youngest squad in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Not only did the Super Eagles come top as the team with the finest jersey, Nigeria’s Super Eagles are the youngest squad in Russia at an average age of just 25 years and 337 days.

Speaking ahead of the Croatia vs Nigeria game later today, team captain John Mikel Obi has urged the players to keep their nerves in check when they play the Vatreni. Obi said;

“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 win the game”

Obi Mikel believes the exuberance of youth may be the Super Eagles’ secret weapon.

“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” he told reporters.

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.

The game against Croatia will be played 8:00pm local time.
