Match Worn Shirt

Babayaro Celestine

Things to Know:

This style of shirt with white numbers was only used by the team during the first game against Argentina. After that match FIFA made the Nigerian Federation changing the name set and numbers in to a black color as the white ones were not visible on TV. So the team played the game against England with black numbers and names.
