The Super Eagles skipper is fired up for his second appearance at world's biggest football party
Nigeria captain has expressed his readiness for the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russia.

The showpiece starts on July 14, with the Super Eagles kicking off their campaign two days later against Croatia in Kaliningrad.

And having made his debut at the 2014 edition in Brazil, the Tianjin Teda midfielder, leading the Super Eagles to Russia this time around, cannot wait to have another taste of it.

Mikel took to Twitter to share a video of him sweating it out on a treadmill, and captioned it: "Running to Russia like.... Ready for action at World Cup 2018."

After their opening Group D game against the Fiery Ones, Gernot Rohr's men trade tackles with Iceland and Argentina.

The team is currently finalising preparation at their Aviva Resort camp in Austria and are expected to arrive at their World Cup base camp in Essentuki on Monday.
