What Is Your Opinion About The New Nike Super Eagles New Jersey For Russia 2018?
Leading world’s sports brand Nike has finally unveiled the new Nigeria jersey designs for the Super Eagles Russia 2018 World Cup campaign. The announcement of the new jersey was made known to the general public through a video posted on the official channel of Nike on YouTube this afternoon, while the official ceremony of the unveiling was held London.
The news jersey is set to be worn at next year FIFA World Cup in Russia, and it has Nigerian music superstar Wizkid alongside Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi, Arsenal FC attacking midfielder Alex Iwobi, duo of Leicester City, Nigerian players Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho were all seen reviewing the new designs, which also included those made for Nigerian fans.
The new design by Nike will ignite memories of the patterned Adidas jersey the Super Eagles wore at the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations in Tunisia and their first World Cup in the United States of America that same year.
What appears to be the away kit has the shirt in predominantly light green background with bold white V-shaped patterns drawn on it. The sleeves are white underneath black patterns. The shorts are plain white.
The home shirt is all-green, this one darker than usual.
While reviewing the designs, Mikel said: “I can see the players going crazy over this one.” Ndidi also sounded excited, adding “This is cultural” in apparent reference to the patterned away kit. “This is different, you know,” Iwobi added, while Iheanacho seemed happy with all the designs.
