Italian football giant, AS Roma have said they will adopt the new design of the Super Eagles of Nigeria jersey, for the 2018/2019 football season.

The club made this known through their official Twitter handle, @ASRomaEN.

The club Tweeted that it has asked Forza27, a print and design company to submit possible designs for the club’s new jersey.

The Tweet Reads;

[THREAD] #WorldCup Concept Kit Special: #ASRoma x Nigeria

“After Nigeria’s new Nike kit was overwhelmingly voted the best shirt at the World Cup by Roma fans, we asked @Forza27_RS to curate the best concept kits that mix classic Roma style with the fresh look of the Super Eagles .
However, the club management and fans will vote for the best design submitted by the team at Forza 27.”

This is a great feat for the Nigerian Football Association and Nike, for coming up with an enviable design for the Super Eagles jersey for the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup; It will be recalled that the Super Eagles jersey which was voted the best out of thirty two jerseys of participating teams, sold out within three minutes of its official release. Selling over 3million jerseys within minutes is another achievement for the Nigerian FA.
