The Europeans would be playing their second World Cup game ever when they face the Super Eagles in their quest to reach the knockout phase

Nigeria will continue their quest for the World Cup diadem when they face debutants in their second game.

The game billed for the Volgograd Arena, Volgograd might be a Second Round decider for Gernot Rohr’s men provided they defeat Croatia in their opening game.

For the tiny-European country, they would be hoping for their first win over the three-time African kings in their first international meeting.

City: Volgograd
Capacity: 45,568
Status: Under construction (new)

This is one of the new builds designed specifically for the World Cup and will also become the home stadium of FC Rotor Volgograd. It will be built on the site of Rotor's old Central Stadium, which was demolished in 2014.

Surprisingly, despite being brand new, relatively large and boasting an eyecatching open-lattice design, the venue will not host any knockout matches. That may be something to do with the city's location nearly 1,000 kilometres south of Moscow.

Group games: Tunisia vs England, Nigeria vs Iceland, Saudi Arabia vs Egypt, Japan vs Poland

Knockout games: None
