Super Eagles By: Ayodeji Tunde | 14/11/2017

The Super Eagles are already getting into the World Cup mood as they met with the official mascot for the Russia 2018 World Cup on Tuesday.

Presently in Krasnador where they will play a friendly with the Argentina national team later on Tuesday, the Super Eagles and officials of the Nigeria Football Federation took time out to attend the FIFA World Cup tour.

Zabivaka is the Official Mascot for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.

Zabivaka means “the one who scores” in Russian, a very suitable name for this wolf who radiates fun, charm and confidence.

The Official Mascot will play a very important role in the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.

The wolf will not only promote the event and entertain crowds at the stadiums, but also become an ambassador for Russia and a worldwide ‘celebrity’.

Zabivaka™ was named only after the most engaging creative process for an Official Mascot in FIFA World Cup history.
