Olamide, Phyno release Super Eagles World Cup tune

According to young Nigerians their popular kit is not just the “nicest” but also shows off how “fly” their generation

Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr has stated that all his players are fit ahead of their 2018 World Cup opener against Croatia on Saturday.

Instead, the man many Nigerians love to hate, South Africa's Chippa United goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi will most likely deputise for the Deportivo de La Coruna youngster in the opening game against Croatia. Their jerseys sold out on the day they were released and they have recived endorsements from unlikely sources including Italian football club side AS Roma and Kenyan politician Raila Odinga.

Their kit has already proved to be a ubiquitous triumph, but Nigeria have just gone and rammed home the fact that they will, without doubt, be the best-dressed nation at the 2018 World Cup by unveiling their travelling suits.


Though 3-5-2 appeared to be the effective formation for the Eagles in the second halves of their defeats by England and Czech Republic, Rohr said at the weekend that he will not make any tactical approach cast in stone.

Alaba, a six-time Austrian Footballer of the Year who also holds the record for being the youngest player to be capped by Austria, is a lover of Nigerian food and music with Wizkid being his favourite musician among many others.

The squad arrived wearing traditional Nigerian dress, a knee-length garment with a green eagle embroidered into the fabric combined with matching hat and white slip-on shoes.
