Eagles Play To Mexico with Controversial Jersey

By Segun Oniyide

The Super Eagles who are currently Africa Champions will be filing out tonight in their new but controversial jerseys against their Mexican counterparts in an international friendly match in Atlanta, USA.

The national team jerseys that were unveiled in Abuja came under scrutiny when the Chairman of the House Committee on Sports, Honourable Godfrey Gaiya said the dominant colour that was supposed to be green was something else.

The Green is not the same with Nigeria’s national colour, The  Green on our national flag would have been Preferred,  The Nigeria Football Federation had since set aside the Nigeria versus Mexico friendly for the first time the Eagles will wear the new jersey.
