The Mayor of Essentuki, Alexander Nekristov, has officially welcomed the Super Eagles of Nigeria ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Essentuki is the Russian city where the Nigerian team is based for the World Cup.
Head coach Gernot Rohr and his players touched down in Russia earlier on Tuesday aboard a chartered flight from Austria at the Mirealnye Vody Airport.
The Super Eagles were then taken to their hotel Sanatorium Istochnik in Essentuki, which is around 35 km from the airport.
In his words, the Mayor said: “Dear guest, it is an honour for me to welcome the best footballers from Nigeria to the city of Essentuki.”
“I am sure you have already felt the warmth of our city. We are glad to meet you.
“For the FIFA Football World Cup, we are proud that your national team chose our city and our training ground and I assure you that you will not regret it.” He concluded.
