Kit manufacturers, Nike, have officially unveiled the 2018 World Cup Jersey to be worn by the Super Eagles at June’s Mundial in Russia.
Nike Football shared a video on their official YouTube channel which reveals several of the national team’s key men catching a first glimpse of the team’s new attire.
The away kit, a neon and white retro design on the body, and dark green chevrons on a white background on the arms, received a more muted response.
“This is different, you know,” Iwobi added, somewhat diplomatically, while Ndidi was a little more enthusiastic, claiming he just “couldn’t wait” to get the kit on in Russia this summer.
Despite the mixed reaction, the kit’s similarity to the iconic shirts worn by the nation’s Golden Generation in their maiden World Cup campaign in the United States in 1994 should earn it major points for nostalgia among Super Eagles supporters
Nigeria will wear the shirts for the first time on March 23 when they face Poland in a friendly in Warsaw.
Nigeria have been pitted against Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in World Cup Group D.
