A few months leading to the World Cup, the internet was ablaze with comments about the new Nigerian Jersey.
Nike was said to be overwhelmed with orders for the new kit, which was reminiscent of one worn during the golden era of Nigerian Football.
Despite the hype and great success our jersey had, we failed to make it to the knockout stages of the World Cup.
It was sad to see the jersey used only 3 times at the tournament because Nigeria failed to make it past the group stage.
Our only consolation were the goals scored by Ahmed Musa in our game against Iceland. He impressed Naija fans with two lovely goals and a bar graze. It was a good game all around, and we showed up right!
Most of all, our Jersey made sense sha!
