Super Eagles arrive Austria for final pre-World Cup friendly



The Super Eagles have arrived in Austria for the final phase of their preparation for the World Cup.

The Nigerian delegation, led by Shehu Dikko, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) second vice president, settled in at Avita Resort, Bad Tatzmannsdorf, on Sunday.

The Austrian embassy in Nigeria had last week denied entry visas to Nnaemeka Anozie, lead physiotherapist, and Chidi Ngoka, equipment manager, thereby depleting the backroom staff.

However, the NFF has approached the Austrian embassy in London with fresh applications for Ngoka and Anozie.

On Wednesday, the Eagles will travel to Vienna, where they will take on the Czech Republic at the Rudolf Tonn Stadium in their final pre-World Cup friendly.

Nigeria lost 1-2 to England on Saturday when both countries met in a friendly at the Wembley Stadium, London.
