The match between Croatia and Nigeria will be held in Kaliningrad at 2:00 on June 17, Beijing time. Prior to the start of the game, the Kaliningrad government announced that Nigerian fans were not allowed to bring live chickens into the stadium. Can you accept the wonderful act of bringing a chicken to the world cup?
In the eyes of Nigerian fans, the chicken painted with green and white is the traditional lucky charm. But at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Nigerian fans were banned from bringing live chickens to the stadium.
Live chickens are considered mascots by Nigerian fans, who used to bring them to the stadium in green and white.

At the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, the local government also banned fans from bringing live chickens to the stadium
