Nigeria’s World Cup Kit Sold Out in the UK

In addition to the home and away kits, the collection included a bucket hat, bumbag, tracksuit and drawstring backpack.

With the Football World Cup a couple of weeks away, teams have released their World Cup kits they will be donning at this year's mega event.

Nigeria's new World Cup jersey was sold out minutes after its release as fans queued outside London's Niketown store in Oxford to make purchases ahead of their friendly against England on Saturday evening at Wembley.

The kit, which sold out worldwide in record time and and eager fans queueing outside Nike stores to get their hands on it, was shown off by the lucky fans who managed to grab a piece all over social media.

Overall, Nike are kitting out 10 teams at the tournament in Russian Federation, including giants such as Brazil, France and England, while Australia's Nike World Cup kit looks pretty similar to the new Bafana Bafana strip.

The demand for counterfeit jerseys is set to soar in Nigeria, following Nike's announcement of a stock out on Friday.

People were pictured camping outside the NikeTown store on Oxford Street in the United Kingdom, and the kit is not yet available for sale in Nigeria. They also claimed there are now no plans to restock the collection, which will only make the much-sought-after pieces all the more valuable.

Not minding the price, many Nigerian celebrities were quick to cup themselves some of the stylish wears which many have attested to being a unique design for the Nigerian soccer team.

With only one week to go before the World Cup kicks off, Nigeria have already emerged as the sartorial champions.
