Former international Mutiu Adepoju has lauded the Nigeria Football Federation and its kits sponsor Nike for producing a jersey worthy of the country’s great standard.

Adepoju, who had spoken to hours before the unveiling, said he believed the new jersey was going to be the best Nigerians would have seen in years.

The former Real Madrid star then took to the social media to express his joy after the official launch of the kits in London on Wednesday.

“Behold, the jersey@NGSuperEagles will be wearing at the 2018 @FIFAWorldCup. It’s a YES! YES!! for me. Thank you @thenff and
