Super Eagles have returned to their camp base in Essentuki after the disappointing result against Croatia at the weekend in Kaliningrad to intensify training for Group D matchday two games.
The team arrived in Kaliningrad on Sunday as they look forward to their next game against Iceland on Friday at Volgograd Arena.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has ensured there’s no unnecessary pressure on Gernot Rohr and his boys ahead of the game on Friday, the camp is cool despite matchday one defeat.
No injury news in camp, the 23 players have been involved in training sessions. The momentum has been intensified and battle for the starting shirts is positive among the players.
With Gernot Rohr starting this week training with a new formation set up, he is expected to make few changes against Iceland. The Franco-German might also opt for a 3-5-2 formation against Iceland.
The team has started training twice a day schedule to ensure the players are in top physical shape before the second game. The team contingent will depart Essentuki on Thursday to the match venue.
Volgograd Arena is a 45,000 capacity stadium and the venue will host Nigeria and Iceland on Friday.
