Nigeria Home Shirt Sells Out On Nike Shop, Queues Outside London Store Are Insane

Nigeria Home Shirt Sells Out On Nike Shop, Queues Outside London Store Are Insane

The demand for Nigeria's sexy new home shirt has been utterly incredible.

Last week, we told you how the Nigeria Football Federation said Nike received a whopping 3 million pre-orders ahead of the kit's launch, potentially generating some pretty remarkable revenue.

Much to the delight of football fans and those who know a spicy football shirt when they see one, the shirt, along with the rest of the beautiful collection, has officially been released today.

Football shirt enthusiasts like myself have been waiting to see it hit the stores ever since pictures of the 1994-inspired home shirt began to do the rounds - and to the surprise of absolutely no-one, it's sold out in rapid time on the Nike store.

The price of £64.95 would typically be seen as far too steep for a football shirt but given its quite possibly the very best we've seen in years, and it's something that would look fresh regardless of whether you're at five-a-side or at Parklife festival, it's been snapped up by people before you could say Jay Jay Okocha.

Interest in purchasing the cool clobber on its launch date was so monumental in fact, that there were huge queues at the Nike Town in London.

Never has a football shirt garnered such a mindblowing response. You can definitely expect it to be in every UK rap music video throughout the summer, with Skepta and Tinie Tempah already sporting it ahead of its release.

The Super Eagles debuted the popular kit in a friendly against Serbia in March and will wear it at Wembley against England tomorrow. Just give them the World Cup already...
