Arguably the most stylish team in the World Cup based on their playing strip, Nigeria has upped the ante ahead of the tournament kick-off with some visually stunning additions to their wardrobes.

Federation Internationale de Football Association and Local Organising Committee (LOC) officials conducted arrival meetings with the administrative officials of Super Eagles at their Sanatorium Istochnik Hotel team base camp in Essentuki.
