This news should make up for our dismal performance yesterday. Guinness Nigeria, as part of its unwavering support for the Super Eagles at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) holding in South Africa, has unveiled the world's largest jersey.

Made in the colours of the Nigerian national team, the jersey which is believed to be the largest jersey ever with a size 275.5 by 249.9 square meter was unveiled at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, on Monday, 21st January, 2013.

Commending Guinness Nigeria for the achievement, Dr Abiola Awonuga the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Sports and Youth Development who represented the Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola, said

"We are pleased to support Guinness Nigeria Plc in their quest to boost the Super Eagles' dream of lifting the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa."

Also, the Guinness Marketing and Innovative Director, Mr. Austin Ofomba believes the jersey will be transmitted to the Eagles. "It's going to be preserved because it is a big monument for us.
