Sun reports that at present the Eagles’ camp is different, and has been so since the battle of Volgograd on Friday, when they beat Iceland in their second match.
Members of the supporters club, politicians, foreign and Nigerian journalists as well as fans want to see the players and their officials.
Meanwhile Eagles’ camp commandant has found it difficult to cope with the increasing number of visitors trooping into the hotel.
Majority of the visitors want to take photographs with Ahmed Musa, scorer of Nigeria’s two goals against Iceland.
