Earlier this year, Nike revealed the new Nigeria kits for the upcoming 2018 World Cup in Russia. At first I was not fan of these jerseys (since I was huge fan of the solid green uniforms Nike did previously). Two months later and I currently waiting to purchase my jersey.
Check out the 2018 Collection Reveal with members of the Nigerian National team: Wilfred Ndidi, Jon Obi Mikel, Alex Iwobi, & Kelechi Iheanacho
With less than 60 days to competition, we’re all excited to see this Super Eagles squad represent the Green White Green in their new kits. Let me know what you think of the kits.

Oluwatobiloba Amusan made history at the Commonwwealth Games as she won gold medal in the Women 100m hurdles race. We’ll continue to keep track of the 20 year sprinter as she prepares for the World Championship & Olympics.
Check out a video clip of the race here:
The 2018 NCAA Women Final Four was one for the ages. Notre Dame’s junior guard Arike Ogunbowale put on a show that fans all over the globe will never forget. Ogunbowale made two game winning buckets this weekend that gave the Notre Dame Lady Irish their second championship in the program history. On Friday night she did this to the then undefeated UConn Huskies team…
To follow up that shot, Arike out did herself in the Championship game against Mississippi State to win the National Championship..
We’re excited to see what Arike has in store for her senior season.
Anthony Joshua defeated Joseph Parker in front of a large crowd in Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. The fight went the distance, but Joshua won by unanimous decision from the three judges. Not only did Joshua display his ability to fight into the late rounds, but also Joshua proved that he could win without his knockout punch. Joshua is now 21-0 with 20 KOs and remains the heavyweight champion of the world. The question everyone wants to know now is who will be Joshua next opponent. I want to see Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder next. The fans deserve this fight. Let’s make it happen!
