Nigeria has upped the stakes in the 2018 Fifa World Cup fashion battle, with the squad heading to Russian Federation for the global football showpiece donning a stunning white traditional attire in a trend that nearly broke the internet.

The Super Eagles landed in Essentuki on Monday night from their training camp in Austria but unfortunately won't be at the opening ceremony in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium which will also host the final.

They will come up against an Argentinian side that struggled to convince in qualifying, despite the presence of Lionel Messi, World Cup minnows Iceland and an ageing Croatian team.
