PHOTOS: Nike Unveil New Super Eagles World Cup Kits

Nike have used their official YouTube channel to do a reveal of the new Nigeria jersey designs for the Super Eagles’ Russia 2018 World Cup campaign.

In a Nike Football video Completesportsnigeria.com viewed on Wednesday, Super Eagles stars Mikel Obi, Wilfred Ndidi, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho were seen reviewing the new designs, which also included those made for Nigerian fans.

The designs 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.

The Super Eagles wore Adidas jerseys at the last World Cup but the kit makers and the Nigeria Football Federation severed their relationship soon after.

Nike officially unveiled the playing jerseys a ceremony in London.

Iwobi as well as Lateef Omodiji and his sister Sophia, who are yet to feature for Nigeria at any age-grade level, were the Nigerian players at the ceremony who modeled in the new Super Eagles jerseys.

The Eagles are expected to launch these kits on March 23 when they face fellow World Cup finalists Poland in a pre-World Cup friendly.

Four days later, the Eagles will also wear the new kits for another World Cup warm-up game against Serbia in London.

    The all grewn is nice but the the other one is errrrrr….Nike can do better than this…they make better jersies for the likes of U.S and other european countries that use nike jerseys….I don’t butly that tapping into the 94 bullshit…even a computer programmer made better jerseys than the one’s I’m looking at…The most important thing tho is for the eagles to soar as high as possible and put our unbelievers to shame…go eagles!

    Best Nigerian kit since 1994! Whoever suggested this must be super ingenious. It captures the creative essence of our nation. I love the underlining concept of the most successful generation of footballers we’ve ever got, The Super Eagles of 1994. I’m also impressed with bringing the Omidijis into this. They’ve demonstrated over and over, unalloyed passion to be part of the Nigerian Dream, football-wise. The Asian adopted baby is even proud to be part of this dream. This is the strongest message ever to appreciate their father’s hyper patriotism. March 23 is proving too long now. Lol

      Are you sure you saw black or dark green? It is all a mixture of shades of green and white. Not bad though, however the ones for the fans are very great and unique; first time such will be made for the fans. Bravo!

    I dnt like the all green home kit. Plain white short wud hav helped blend the rather too dark jersey. The players will appear too dark on the field. Nevertheless, i hope eagles will make us proud in russia.

  • Interesting one. I knew there was something up in the sleeves from Nike.

  • Wow…this new jersey will be glorious for the super eagles…visca el super eagle
