NFF and Nike have made public the 2018 World Cup kit to be worn by the Super Eagles at June’s Mundial in Russia.
The home kit carries a familiar badge recolored to honor the 96 gold medal-winning Dream Team.
The away kit, a neon and white retro design on the body, and dark green chevrons on a white background on the arms, received a more muted response.
Despite the mixed reaction, the kit’s similarity to the iconic shirts worn by the nation’s Golden Generation in their maiden World Cup campaign in the United States in 1994 should earn it major points for nostalgia among Super Eagles supporters.
Also unveiled is the camp wears of the Super Eagles, with report saying the kits will go on sale from April/May
Nigeria are using Nike as their kit manufacturer after having been fitted by Adidas for their last two World Cup campaigns – in 2010 and 2014.
They will wear the shirts for the first time on March 23 when they face Poland in a friendly in Warsaw.
Nigeria have been pitted against Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in World Cup Group D.
