The Super Eagles looked in high spirits for their first training in Essentuki ahead of Saturday’s opening World Cup game against star-studded Croatia.

The training lasted for two hours and it was rounded up with a two-a-side game between what looked like a likely starting XI against Croatia.

Skipper Mikel Obi and Ahmed Musa were on target for the likely starters, while Joel Obi opened the scoring for the hopefuls.

The players were relaxed and in very high spirits throughout the two hours of the training which started at 5.30 pm local time.

It was an entertaining evening for the locals, who numbered close to 500 at the smart Essentuki Arena, which was only completed in November.

Nigeria battle Croatia in Kaliningrad Saturday night by 8 pm local time to open their World Cup campaign in Russia.
