World Cup 2018 By: Ayodeji Tunde | 18/05/2018
Italian Club AS Roma are already endearing themselves into the hearts of more Nigerians following the public show of support for the Super Eagles ahead of the Russia 2018 World Cup.Though no player in the Nigeria provisional World Cup squad plays for the Italian giants, they tweeted the squad and also wished Gernot Rohr's side the very best in Russia.

Sadiq Umar, presently on loan in the Eredivisie is perhaps the biggest Nigerian name to feature for Roma.
Thanks you @BashirAhmaad - good luck to the squad at the @FIFAWorldCup in Russia. Italy won't be there, so #ASRoma will be supporting our own players and the #SuperEagles 🇳🇬#ForzaSuperEagles https://t.co/YM97D7lqn0— AS Roma English (@ASRomaEN) May 17, 2018
