Nigerian World Cup jersey excites fans

Nike, on Wednesday at a ceremony in London, England unveiled the kits Nigeria's Super Eagle will wear at this year's World Cup in Russian Federation. In comes a plain but sharp white shirt with blue shorts and white socks.

The jersey designs predominantly show light green background with bold white V-shaped patterns drawn on it.

"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 Russian Federation this summer.

The website did a ranking of the kits of all the 19 countries who have unveiled their World Cup kits and picked the Nigerian jersey as the best from the lot.

The Russia 2018 World Cup is only 4 months away, and teams have started revealing their kits for the tournament. We are also introduced to the athlete journey pieces which we'll likely see our players wear off the pitch.

"With Nigeria, we wanted to tap into the attitude of the nation", said Dan Farron, Nike Football Design Director, in the kit's press release. "They are part of a resoundingly cool culture".

However, the kit refuses to veer away from tradition, with the away strip using the classic all green look of Nigeria.
