Nike Have Received Three Million Orders For Stunning Nigeria World Cup Kits

Everyone was sent into a frenzy when Nigeria unveiled their outrageously good World Cup kits back in February and the demand for them has been nothing short of incredible.

They aren't even officially on sale for another six days but the Nigeria Football Federation say that Nike have received a whopping 3 million pre-orders - with football fans desperate to get their hands on the best spicy shirts to be worn for the showpiece in Russia.

Already, through the extraordinary amount of people putting their pre-orders in, the revenue stands at approximately $255 million, which is just mental if the figures are to be believed.

The Super Eagles debuted their fresh 1994-inspired home shirt in a friendly with Serbia back in March and it looked every bit as good as we thought it would be.

For now, only fake replicas have been available - though UK rappers with Nigerian roots have managed to get their paws on it before everyone else.

It won't be a cheap purchase, as is the case with football shirts these days, but boy are you going to get value for money when you are strutting around looking like a million bucks in the summer.

29 May can't come soon enough...
