Nigeria Fan Feature - 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

These Nigeria Fans Are on Top of the World

People aren't generally in great spirits when they're at the airport, except for maybe when their team has just scored a major World Cup victory. That's precisely what Getty Images photographer Ryan Pierse encountered at Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport when he saw nine Nigeria fans riding high after attending their team's high-octane 2-0 win over Iceland last week. So he decided to capture that joy with an impromptu photoshoot. Here, stunning portraits of those exuberant supporters.
