A lot of fans queued outside London’s Nike Town store in Oxford Street to buy the Nigeria 2018 World Cup kits on Friday.
Sportswear giants Nike commenced sales of the highly-rated jerseys and training kits on June 1 ahead of the country's sixth appearance at the Fifa World Cup.

Last month, the Nigeria Football Federation claimed that Nike had received three million pre-orders globally for the Super Eagles' jerseys.
The NFF says Nike has received 3million orders for the Nigeria World Cup jerseys that will go on sale May 29. At $85 each, that's a decent $255m (91.8bn Naira).— Lolade Adewuyi (@Jololade) May 17, 2018
Nike and the NFF agreed to a $1m per annum contract three years ago. Time to improve it, all things being equal.
