Just like their Nike jerseys, their outfits were acclaimed again with positives reviews from world media like Daily Mail and GQ.

Super Eagles senior official Pascal Patrick confirmed the arrival of the Super Eagles of Nigeria in Russian Federation to stressing that the players are ready to make Nigerians proud. We beat Argentina 4-2 in a friendly in November.
