Super Eagles news

Founded in 1945, Nigeria played its first official game in October 1949, while still a British colony.

Nigeria's first major footballing success was winning the gold medal at the Second All-Africa games in 1973.

In 1980, Super Eagles won the African Cup of Nations for the first time in Lagos.

The team was originally called the Red Devils by the British who brought football to Nigeria. However, after Nigeria became an independent country, the name was changed to the Green Eagles.

In 1994, Nigeria managed by Clemens Westerhof reached the World Cup for the first time.

During April 1994, the Super Eagles ranked 5th in the FIFA World Rankings, the highest ranking achieved by an African football team.

In 2014, Nigeria won their first FIFA World Cup title since 1998. They have qualified for four of the last five FIFA World Cups, and reached the round of 16 three times.

From 1998 to 2004, Nike supplied Nigeria's kit. Then Nigeria's kit has been supplied by Adidas.
