Nigeria World Cup kit sells out in minutes

Nigeria may not be favourites to win the World Cup this summer but their new kits have won over football fans.

The home kit pays subtle homage to Nigeria's '94 shirt and was just as popular in stores.

Online pre-orders for the Nigeria jersey from Nike exceeded 3 million.

Arsenal's Alex Iwobi (front-right) and Leicester's Wilfred Ndidi (third from right, back row) modelled the kits.

Nigeria's new jersey was sold out minutes after its release as fans queued outside London's Niketown store in Oxford to make purchases.

Everything from the unveiling of the design to the marketing to the execution was ideal and the Super Eagles World Cup Kit in collaboration with Nike is arguably one of the most popular kits ever made. London's Nike Town had massive queues outside.

One said: "Nigeria's kit is bloody attractive".

According to The Independent, not only is the home kit sold out, but also the away and training kits.

Fans will get a chance to see the kit as Nigeria face England in a friendly at Wembley on Saturday.

Nigeria's "underdog" football squad need to play together and not as individuals, captain John Mikel Obi said, with the team acknowledging they face a tough group stage at the World Cup in Russian Federation next month.

German sports apparel manufacturer adidas, meanwhile, have 12 teams at the World Cup, winning this year's kit competition, as Reuters reported.

With only one week to go before the World Cup kicks off, Nigeria have already emerged as the sartorial champions.
