The Super Eagles Jersey

With the World Cup around the corner, Nigerians have been seen across the country donning the Super Eagle’s new jersey, which has been voted as number 1 in the world.

However, there’s a twist. Nike, the official sponsor of the Nigerian jersey, was yet to release the jersey, up until today, June 1. Also, the jersey reportedly costs about ₦41,000.

You already know Nigerians cannot get past the ridiculous cost. Here’s how they reacted on social media.

Wait, what?
