Nigeria World Cup kit: Football fans scramble to get their hands on snazzy new Nike strip in frenzy on Oxford Street

Hundreds of football fans queued outside Nike’s flagship store on Oxford Street as they tried to get their hands on Nigeria’s ‘snazzy’ new official World Cup shirt.

Fans queued outside NikeTown this morning as the hotly-anticipated football top hit UK shelves for the first time.

The Super Eagles kit reportedly sold out within minutes online after it finally went on sale.

Over three million pre-orders were made before Friday, according to the Nigerian Football Federation.

There has been huge buzz around the kit ahead of the World Cup in Russia, with the home shirt’s zig zag design and retro look leading to it being hailed the tournament’s best.

Both home and away kits, which have been promoted by Arsenal star Alex Iwobi, among others, cost £65.

Nigeria will debut the kit in their friendly match against England at Wembley on Saturday evening.

Nike UK said on Friday that the kit sold out almost immediately online, with limited availability likely in stores and apparently no plans to restock the collection.

It first went on sale in some Nike stores in Nigeria on Tuesday, before being made available in the UK on Friday.

The Fifa World Cup begins in Russia on June 14.
