Nigeria-vs-Czech-RepublicFans of the Super Eagles of Nigeria on Wednesday (6 June 2018) stormed the Rudolf-Tonn-Stadion, a city subdivision of Schwechat, Austria with flags of the defunct Biafra Republic during a football match with Czech Republic.

The Karel Jarolím-led lads piped the Super Eagles 1 – 0 in an international friendly ahead of the World Cup in Russia.

Amazingly, most of the fans at the stadium were seen flying the flag of the former Republic of Biafra, which consists a horizontal tricolour of red, black, and green, charged with a golden rising sun over a golden bar.

The fans could be heard chanting in Igbo, which is the official language of the rested country.

Meanwhile, Nigerians on social media have expressed shock over the appearance of the Biafran national colours at the stadium in a match involving Nigeria.
