Nigeria’s World Cup Kits Flew Off The Shelves In Less Time Than It Took You To Read This Headline
We told you the Nigeria World Cup kit was the best back in February. We were proven right when Nike finally released the kit on Friday.
The Nigeria World Cup kit was the last official uniform release before Russia 2018, but sales didn’t last long. In about three minutes, the Nigeria home jersey was sold out online. Soon after, the away kit was sold out. Last week, Nike said it had received three million pre-orders for the Nigeria World Cup kit.
We shouldn’t really be surprised. Just enjoy the splendor of the unique uniform.

The away kit isn’t bad either.
Fans in London lined up around the block for a chance to purchase the newly released kit.

Nike definitely did something right with the Nigeria World Cup kit, especially the exceptional home jersey. See how it compares to some of the other designs on complete collection of World Cup jerseys here.
Nigeria opens the 2018 World Cup against Croatia on June 16 in Kaliningrad, followed by matches against Iceland and Argentina in what should be one of the most entertaining groups of the tournament.
