For the past few weeks, the Nigerian super eagles have been making wave on social media. It seems the Eagles are over ready for the Russia 2018 Fifa world cup. Since the day Nike officially released the super eagle’s jersey, the Nigerian team attracted the attention of the football world.
The super eagles’ jersey moved from the most talked about jersey to the best 2018 FIFA world cup jersey – that’s incredible right? Ever since Nike released the sports kit, football lovers all over the world commended the wear. Fans were pictured queuing just to get the jersey. According to reports, the former African cup of Nations champion’s jersey sold out within 2 hours.
As if that’s not enough, the super eagles decided to change what seems to be footballers travel wear norm – the suit and tie. The Nigeria super eagles were spotted aboard the aeroplane and at the airport as they travel to Russia in traditional attire.
The traditional attire wore by the super eagles has only two colours (Green and white) and an eagle on top of a football on the collar.
John Nwachukwumereze said the world hasn’t seen anything yet as he strongly believes that since the jersey and the travel wear have outclassed others, the Eagles performance will outclass their opponent too.
Another fan, Ricky Ajayi, praised the NFF president, Amaju Pinnick and his team for the good work he is doing.
However, the media attention the super eagles were getting did not go down well with some fans as they express they displeasure on the way the media are praising the eagles.
Nigeria is in group D alongside Argentina, Croatia and Iceland. The Super Eagles will face their first opponent, Croatia on Saturday, June 16 at the Kaliningrad Stadium, Russia by 8:00 pm Nigeria Time.
