Dear @nikefootball, Thanks for the Super Eagles’ jersey. It brought some great memories. With this medium, i want to plead with @FIFAWorldCup to add 1 point to every match we(Nigeria) play in the World Cup because our jersey is the best. Thanks

Until you realise Nigeria was not even thinking of the World Cup when they made this jersey but of the Lagos Fashion Week

The Nigerian jersey is a beauty.

Some Nigerians beg to differ:
The Nigerian jersey is ugly. Whoever came up with that horrible old school design should be ashamed.

The new Nigerian 2018 World Cup Jersey looks like the souls of 100 cucumbers were invoked into a trash fabric.

Meanwhile, others are concerned about the location of the unveiling:
Jersey is 🔥 no doubt. Just confused as to why the official Nigerian football shirt unveiling is done in London and not at home in Nigeria.

Although it has been rumoured that the jersey will be out in June, you can trust Nigerians:
You’ve gotta give it to ABA boys. By seeing the Nigerian jersey flood the internet yesterday alone, they’ve already started designing their version.
