The breach came as a shock to the three-time African champions who have over 230,000 followers on the social media platform.

Tuesday’s hack saw all of the Super Eagles’ content deleted and replaced with pictures from an unknown stylist and influencer based in Istanbul, Turkey.

For Tuesday’s draw in Cairo, Nigeria are in Pot 1 alongside some of the continent’s heavyweights and will be hoping for a favourable outcome as they aim to make their seventh World Cup appearance in Qatar 2022.
