Super Eagles grateful for fans’ support, criticisms, resume training for Argentina clash

The Super Eagles have expressed gratitude for the support and criticisms they received from fans and well-meaning Nigerians in the course of their 2018 FIFA World Cup competition in Russia.

“The session will start at 4.45 p.m. local time and will be open to fans and the media,” the team added.
