  • People are literally queueing around the block for the Nigeria kit launch

Nigeria's ultra-popular World Cup 2018 shirt sold out within minutes of going on sale on Friday, with football fans queuing round the block to get their hands on the Super Eagles strip.

The team's home and away shirts were priced at £64.95, with other items reaching higher prices.

Among those featured in the Super Eagles kit advertising campaign are Nigeria and Arsenal player Alex Iwobi, Leicester's Wilfried Ndidi, Grace La Doja, Skepta's manager, WizKid, UK rapper Not3s, Beats 1 presenter Julie Adenuga and photographer Yagazie Emezi.

Despite the huge demand, Nike have stated that there are "no current plans for a restock", so if you have missed out, it looks like you have missed out permanently.

The Nigeria Football Federation, which has often complained that counterfeit sales undermine sponsorship deals with partners like Nike, explained that it had received three million pre-orders for this year's kit.

There is a slightly less loud away kit which has also sold out.

Fans will have the chance to see the kit today as Nigeria face England in a friendly at Wembley.

Many Nike outlets, home and overseas were visited by millions of Nigerians who wanted some of the newly-designed Super Eagles Jersey kit upon its release on June 1.

"The queue shows the pride Nigerians have and that they are willing to support their team at the World Cup and spend money to do so". The final piece of the Nigerian World Cup Merch shall be the Dri-FIT Squad Men's Soccer Top.
