Sloane Stephens was the cynosure of Nigerians’ eyes on Wednesday as she stole the show on social media for sporting a Nigerian jersey.
The American tennis star was greeted with impressive gestures from Nigerians as we posted a photo of herself in a Nigerian jersey.
Some Nigerians who commented on her photo expressed their pleasure and support for her as she donned the beautiful jersey.
Hi, Sloane. The Super Eagles play Mexico at the AT&T Stadium, Dallas on May 28 and Ecuador on June 2 at the Red Bull Arena, Harrison, New Jersey. Wear your jersey proudly and show up for either game. I assure you'll meet some of our stars and the matches will be memorable.
