The bubbling spirit in the Flying Eagles training camp in Nurnberg, Germany, has shot up after the team received a full complement of their training gear from kit sponsors Nike.
The team now have their travelling bags, boots, slippers, canvas shoes, training kits and casual wears from Nike as the sponsorship agreement kicked in on April 1, 2015.
“The new kits have worked wonders on the spirit of the boys. Now, they just want to go to New Zealand and ‘just do it’ as the Nike slogan goes,” said Flying Eagles assistant coach Nduka Ugbade.
“I really love the travelling bag. It’s simply beautiful,” praised an impressed defender Prince Izu Omego.
“The wind cheater is very comfortable and comes in very handy,” added striker Saviour Godwin.
The majority of the team are also happy that the kits they have received are in “Nigerian green”.
The players were also very delighted to pose for pictures in their new Nike gears.
Interestingly, several of the Flying Eagles stars already have personal endorsement contracts with Nike.
These players include Moses Simon, Isaac Success, Chidera Eze, Kelechi Iheanacho, Musa Yahaya and Chidiebere Nwakali.
