Nigeria’s World Cup kit sells out after three million pre-orders

People are literally queueing around the block for the Nigeria kit launch

One such team which is making headlines for all the right reasons is Nigeria's World Cup kit.

The Nigeria Football Federation, which has often complained that counterfeit sales undermine sponsorship deals with partners like Nike, explained that it had received three million pre-orders for this year's kit.

There were long queues outside London's Nike Town store and thousands more were trying to buy the kit online, however both options are now no longer available.

Nigeria's official home kit for the 2018 World Cup has sold out worldwide just minutes after being released.

There is a slightly less loud away kit which has also sold out.

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

Who will pay for King Jong Un's hotel stay in Singapore?
The summit will still take place on June 12 in the Southeast Asian island nation of Singapore, now only a week and a half away. Kim Yong-chol is a close aide of Kim Jong-un and is vice chairman of the ruling Workers Party's central committee.

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

Nigeria will wear one of the new strips for the first time since it went on sale in Saturday's friendly clash with England at Wembley.

Meanwhile a recent worldwide survey rated the Super Eagles' Russia 2018 World Cup jersey as the best among the 32 nations in the tournament.

The futuristic-looking green and white kit Designed by Nike pays "subtle homage to Nigeria's '94 shirt, with its eagle wing-inspired black-and-white sleeve and green torso", the kit makers said.

"It is good to see Nigeria on the world stage". The suited and booted side were drawn in Group D alongside the Balkan nation, Iceland and old World Cup foes Argentina.
