The American man @GregDybec who shared a photo of the jersey on Twitter disclosed that he didn’t believe the Nigerian man will deliver the shirt till he got a delivery knock
An American man who couldn’t stop gushing about owning the famous Nigerian jersey, revealed that it was sent to him by a Nigerian man after they met at the World Cup Competition, which was held in Russia.
The American man @GregDybec who shared a photo of the jersey on Twitter, wrote;
Met a Nigerian man at the World Cup & told him how much I loved this jersey (sold out everywhere). He took my address and told me he’d mail me one. Didn’t believe him but today this showed up all the way from Nigeria. Random acts of kindness do exist.
Recall that the Nigerian jersey to the 2018 World Cup, was crowned the fans’ favourite. According to a poll carried out by Spanish respected newspaper-Marca English and Spanish sites, revealed that fans queued for hours to get their hands on the Super Eagles kit.
France joined Nigeria on the podium with Croatia third on the English poll, with Spanish fans opting for the Spanish shirt on the Spanish website. Germany’s, Iceland’s and Mexico’s shirts also did well across the votes but fans were turned off by Serbia’s effort, which fared poorly in both Marca polls.
It would also be recalled that hundreds of Nigerian football fans queued outside Nike’s flagship store on Oxford Street in London, United Kingdom, as they tried to get their hands on Nigeria’s ‘snazzy’ new official World Cup jersey.
The Super Eagles kit reportedly sold out within minutes online after it finally went on sale, as over three million pre-orders were made before England and Nigeria’s friendly at Wembley Stadium. Both home and away kits among others, cost £65.
There was also 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.
