Nigeria at the World Cup

Nigeria's national football team is nicknamed the Super Eagles. Their best result in the World Cup was reaching the second round in 1994 and 1998. Nigeria qualified for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, but finished bottom of their pool and therefore knocked out in the first round. In 2014 they did not make it past the group stage.
