Nigerian fans are coming to terms with a loss to England in a friendly game at the Wembley on Saturday, just a day after their "beautiful" jersey was the hottest sports story in the world.

However, Rohr noted that he would name a strong side against Gareth Southgate's men.

With the return of Victor Moses to the side and Mikel Obi set to start, the team is nearly at full strength with only Leicester City midfield destroyer Wilfred Ndidi missing.

"But at this point in time it's all about positives vibes from our side and we're looking at the World Cup as a big test for us".

"It is important for us not to think we can win the World Cup", Rohr said.

"And, yeah, I feel I learned from the things I did before, but it's not something I worry about at all".

"It was fantastic to get on the pitch, that's all we work for is to be on the pitch week in, week out, and it was just really nice to get on the pitch and get the win".

It is considered one of the best worldwide kits of all time and Nigeria are going to be everyone's second favourite team at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation because of it.

USA diplomats there experienced possible "sonic attacks", and the US eventually reduced the number of American employees there. The State Department was taking the incident very seriously and working to determine the cause and impact, the embassy said.
