Nigerians on Twitter believe Nigeria’s dark green away kit is jinxed as Nigeria has never won any match with that jersey.
The Super Eagles squandered a two-goal advantage in the friendly match played against the Ukrainian national team to end the match 2-2.
Nigeria’s first goal was scored by debutante Joe Aribo in the 3rd minute of the game and the Super Eagles doubled the lead half-an-hour later with a victor Osimhen penalty in the 33rd minute.
The Eagles defence however paid heavily for their lack of concentration as the Ukrainians drew one back in the 78th minute through Oleksandr Zinchenko before Roman Yaremchuk leveled the score in the 80th minute for the host.
Nigerians on Twitter spared the boys blame for failure to secure victory but faulted the jersey instead:

Pls Pept judges, one more job tomorrow, after sacking Buhari, ban this jersey too
How could complacency set in for a team that was leading with 2 goals and got leveled under 60secs if not because of this bitter leaf jersey.#UKRNGA pic.twitter.com/XBgWjOFtDd
