The new Super Eagles Jersey: hit or miss?

Share This

The NFF and Nike have released the new Super Eagles jersey ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and Nigerians, as usual, are not afraid to air their opinion.  

The new kit, it looks, pays homage to the first time the Super Eagles qualified for the world cup, which was in USA, in 1994. The design features strips in zig zag shapes across the sleeves and torso and is a clear contrast to the designs by Adidas over the last couple of years. 

The new jersey was unveiled yesterday in London and in attendance were  and was modelled by Arsenal's Iwobi, Eagles captain Mikel Obi and Leicester duo, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho

Generally, the kit looks everything but boring and contrasts positively with the basic design we have been subjected to Adidas for a while. But still, it looks more like a modern retake of the jerseys in the 90's, and while that isn't particularly bad, I for one, was expecting something fresh and totally different. 

Will I cop the shirt? 

Of course!
