The Teranga Lions of Senegal arrived Russia on Tuesday, June 12 with native attires for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The Senegalese are one of Africa's five representatives at the World Cup and emulated their western neighbours Nigeria who also arrived in traditional attires.

The Senegalese star players Sadio Mane, Idrissa Gueye and captain Cheikhou Kouyaté were all smiles as they arrived in their all blue native attires.

The Senegalese are one of the African sides tipped to scale through the group stages and emulate the record of their previous squad that got to the quarterfinals of the 2002 FIFA World Cup in Korea/Japan.
