Please does anyone know why The Super Eagles wore away kit against Argentina, when in fact they should have worn the home kit?

Thanks a lot!

To be honest, I've been asking same question. The home jersy made us stood out in the world cup.
And then first game we wore the away jersey and lost. Second game we wore the home Jersey and won. Then final group game we went back to the away jersey when clearly we are the home team.

NB: I'm not saying we lost due to the Jersey, but why did use away jersey when clearly we were the home team.

I have a feeling it was about the relative contrast in colours.
The light blue & white of Argentina vs the light green and white of Naija probably didn’t offer enough contrast.
If Argentina was designated the ‘home’ team for the tie, they would have got first option and obviously chose their traditional home jersey.

If it were a ‘home’ country that had a naturally contrasting colour to ours (eg Red, blue, orange etc) we’d choose whichever colour we like.

That’s my take.

Actually we were listed as the home team. Argentina should be the ones to switch to a different colour.

In that case we must have willingly opted for the dark green strip.
