Three million people pre-ordered replica shirts, according to the Nigeria Football Federation, and shoppers queued outside Nike’s flagship store in London on Friday to try to get their hands on Nigeria jersey for World Cup.
The home and away shirts, priced at £64.95, were sold out on the sportswear giant’s website soon after they were released.
Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi is among the players who modeled the Nigeria official world cup jersey 2018, which was first displayed back in February, together with Leicester’s Wilfried Ndidi, who wore a branded bucket hat and jacket for the promotional photos.
The makers describe the home kit as a “subtle homage to Nigeria’s ’94 shirt, with its eagle wing-inspired black-and-white sleeve and green torso”.
The away kit, meanwhile, is a “cool, refined vision” of a classic full-green strip.
The Super Eagles are going to be wearing their new shirt when they face England in their World Cup warm-up game at Wembley on Saturday by 17:15 BST.
