Nigeria have announced their 23-man squad for this summer's World Cup in Russia.

The African side faced off against England on Saturday evening and lost 2-1. Three Lions defender Gary Cahill headed the side ahead before Harry Kane doubled England's lead with a deflected strike.

But Nigeria pulled one back through Arsenal striker Alex Iwobi. Nigeria would not have deserved to win the game but the pockets of talent they possess was clear in last night's game at Wembley.

Now the Super Eagles have announced their 23-man squad for the World Cup, with some famous faces included.

Chelsea winger Moses will be travelling with Kelechi Iheanacho, Ahmed Musa and Wilfred Ndidi to Russia, as the side look to improve on their record of never progressing past the last 16 in their last five appearances at the World Cup.

Attention has turned to the side after they revealed their new kit.

It's been labelled as one of the greatest kits of all time.


Here's our thoughts on it from yesterday's match against Gareth Southgate's men. It's sexy AF.

The World Cup is only weeks away and this means national sides are getting underway in their last remaining friendlies before the tournament starts.

Luckily, Nigeria are playing England, which means we all get to ogle their delicious attire.

The game is being played at Wembley, shown on ITV, and people on social media are going crazy over their gorgeous design.

The kit might be the single best thing to ever happen in football ever. If the kit was a person, it would have marriage offers from across the globe, be likely crowned as royalty, and be considered by scientists and designers as officially the best looking 'thing' in human history. These facts are irrefutable.

Just this week, the Nike store run out of stock of the slick kit, with everyone wanting to get their hands on a pair. No surprise, there.

It is considered one of the best international kits of all time and Nigeria are going to be everyone's second favourite team at this summer's World Cup in Russia because of it.

Is there a better kit than Nigeria's 2018 World Cup effort? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
