The new Nigeria home kit to be worn at the World Cup 2018 in Russian Federation was sold out minutes after its release on Friday morning as hundreds of fans queued outside London's NikeTown store in Oxford Street.

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

One such team which is making headlines for all the right reasons is Nigeria's World Cup kit.

London is home to thousands of Nigerian ex-pats and people with Nigerian heritage, meaning the kit had no shorter of takes at Nike's central London HQ.

Arsenal's Alex Iwobi and Leicester's Wilfred Ndidi were among those to have modeled the kit.

The only remaining items available from the Nigeria kit on Nike's United Kingdom site are two kinds of football boot, priced at £254.95, and a football gymsack, priced at £12.95.

Nigeria's World Cup kit has captured the attention of football fans across the globe following its official release on Friday.

Nike confirmed the depressing news on Twitter, adding that there were no plans for restocking the much sought after kit.

Fans will get a chance to see the kit as Nigeria face England in a friendly at Wembley on Saturday.
