Remember the long lines formed by willing fans eager to buy what was voted best jersey at the last FIFA World Cup in Russia?
Both the NFF and Nike expecting a similar rush and in fact President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick anticipates a longer queue for the Nigerian jersey version 2020.
He shared: ”The design this time around is higher and a beauty to behold and I foresee a longer stretch of a line of people in search of Eagles jersey.|”
