New Nigeria Kits Revealed: Nike Unveil Official Super Eagles Kits Ahead Of Russia 2018 World Cup

Nike unveiled the new kits with Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Wednesday afternoon  at a ceremony in London, with stars such as Alex Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho  and team captain Mikel Obi tasked with showing off the Super Eagles kits ahead of 2018 World Cup.

Nigeria have released their home and away kits for the 2018 World Cup as the Super Eagles pay homage to their USA 1994 campaign.

The home shirt features a bright green-and-white zig-zag pattern spreading across the torso and the contrasting sleeves.

Nigeria’s away shirt for the Russia World Cup is more understated and closer in resemblance to their more recent shirts with an all-over dark green design.

The Super Eagles have never advanced past the round of 16 at the World Cup having reached the knockout stages three times in their history – in 1994, 1998 and 2014.

The Super Eagles are joined by Morocco, Senegal, Tunisia and Egypt in flying the flag for Africa at the 2018 World Cup.
