(It’s worth noting that the real life groups for the WC would presumably have already been known by the time these strips were produced, but the ROTR team took artistic licence by having Nigeria play both the hosts and Brazil, for the benefit of the storyline. It’s only a shame that the USA are shown in their older kit, although the artists, Davis in particular, do a good approximation of Nigeria’s actual ’94 kit.)
