Nigeria First African Team in Soccer World Cup Russia

Nigeria has become the first African side to book their place at 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia after a 1-0 win over Zambia earned them an unassailable lead at the head of Group B.
According to FIFA website, Nigeria has been dominant in Group B, remaining unbeaten throughout the qualifying games.
With a rich youthful streak through the side, seeing the likes of Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Moses Simon score crucial goals during the games, there will be something of a fresh feel to the side that has only missed one tournament - Germany 2006 - since their debut in 1994.
Led by John Obi Mikel, who made his belated World Cup debut at Brazil 2014, they will be hoping to better their Round of 16 exit from three years ago - the furthest stage they have reached, having also done so in their first two appearances.
