The base camp will be home to the team from where they will fly out to their various match venues and return after their games.

“Both the coach and Dayo (Enebi) are already finalising on the camp,” a team official said.

“I am sure it’s 90-95% completed now.

“That’s why they stayed back after the draw on Friday to conclude on the matter.”

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) had initially submitted two likely camp sites to FIFA before the draw for approval.

Nigeria are drawn in Group D along with Argentina, Croatia and Iceland.

They will play their first round matches in three different Russian cities.
