Concise News reports that the three-time African champions bowed to the Desert Foxes in additional time in Cairo. And some social media users are attributing the bad luck to the jersey worn on the night.
Nigeria have lost two matches at the tournament so far. On both occasions, the all green jersey was donned.

Hey guys, stop this superstition about the Green jersey. We have won four games with the jersey, it’s all superstition. Today’s result won’t be about the jersey, but our boys performance.#OgaNlaMediaAFCON#AFCONonDStv #AFCONonGOtv

With all due respect who asked them to wear this complete green Jersey? In recent years it hasn’t favoured the team.
