Wilfred Ndidi will be playing at the world cup with extra motivation when he suits up for the Super Eagles as the midfielder could wear special boots dedicated to his girlfriend, Chidinma.
Ndidi, who is one of the stars to watch in the Nigerian side at the tournament, had his football boots customized with the name of his bae etched on them.
The 24-year-old will wear the NIKE Mercurial boots with the inscription DINMA under the iconic swoosh.
Ndidi, who admits he wears the moniker “lover boy” proudly, posted a picture of two pairs of white boots on his instagram page last month and the same page is replete with pictures of the lady he described as “My everything everyday”.
Nigeria will open their world cup campaign in Russia against Croatia on June 16 at the Kaliningrad Stadium.
