Super Eagles coach Genort Rohr is banking on the trio of John Obi Mikel, Brian Idowu and Ahmed Musa to use their influence to get support for
Nigeria from Russia fans at the World Cup.
The trio have a form of connection or the other with Russia and Rohr is hopeful this should favour Nigeria as the World Cup kicks off today.
The Super Eagles gaffer also noted that the distance from Nigeria to Russia did not allow for much-traveling fans to support the national team hence the need to garner as much sentiments as possible for the Eagles.
Rohr will hope to lead his ward to victory against Croatia in their first match of the 2018 World Cup in Russia later this week.
