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

The Nigerian Football Federation revealed that the Super Eagles' kit has received over three million pre-orders.

Nevertheless, here is a grand statement: this is the best World Cup for kits of all time.

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

Nigeria will debut the in-demand kit in their friendly against England this evening at Wembley as they continue to prepare for the World Cup.

The Nigerian team's home and away kits were priced at £64.95 before they sold out, with other items including a jacket, training clothing and footwear also available.

In the poll conducted by Sky Sports, the Nigeria jersey garnered over 40,000 votes to beat world champions Germany to second place with 21,000 votes.

Rahman Noodles tweeted: "I'm pissed off!"

"Even people who aren't Nigerian want to get this jersey and that should tell you a lot".

Ndu on the Curb cheekily threatened to rob at gunpoint any non-Nigerian wearing the shirt. The Jersey shirt was said to be sold at N41,000 and the tracksuit sold for N70,000.

The shirts, of varying quality, were being sold for as little as $5. My nieces were unhappy when I got back home.

But it sold out just moments after going on sale after it was lauded for being the best jersey to be worn in Russian Federation.

Not minding the price, many Nigerian celebrities were quick to cup themselves some of the stylish wears which many have attested to being a unique design for the Nigerian soccer team.
