The Best-Dressed Team at the World Cup Might Just be Nigeria

Let’s hear it for the Nigerian soccer team: the “Super Eagles’’ World Cup jersey is the most popular in the world right now. Nike’s Nigerian “Naija” kit, which sells for $90 (SAR/AED 330) a pop, has broken records, as fans have already pre-ordered 3 million of the green and white, zig-zag–printed jerseys. The team has proven to have some off-duty swagger, as well. This week, they uploaded an image of themselves on a plane en route to Russia looking dapper in optic white tunics with a green soccer ball print at the collar. And instead of their usual swishy shorts? They wore tailored white trousers.

But that’s not all. The Super Eagles’s accessories are, well, goals. They wore natty boater hats with a grass green ribbon and matching feathers. The players may have started a new footwear trend that sure beats the humble cleat, too: White loafers with a green tassel bouncing off the front. Sounds like a clear win to us.
