Star Boy, Wizkid and Super Eagles Forward, Alex Iwobi both graced the unveiling of the team’s new jersey ahead of the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup set to kick off on the 14th of June.
The jersey is similar to the kit worn by the Super Eagles team at the 1994 World Cup – the squad comprised Mutiu Adepoju, Sunday Oliseh, Rashidi Yekini (late) among others.
Also present at the unveiling ceremony which held on the 7th of February were the Premier League trio Wilfred Ndidi, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho, as well as ex-Chelsea midfielder and Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel who helped with the launching of the new jersey.
Reacting to the new kit, Adepoju gave it a nod.
“Behold the jerseys @NGSuperEagles will be wearing at the 2018 @FIFAWorldCup. It’s a YES! YES!! for me. Thank you @thenff and @nikefootball”, he wrote on Twitter.
The home Kit has a eagle wing-inspired black and white sleeve and green torso while the away kits carries the full green strip. They’d also wear the new kit on the 23rd of March when Nigeria faces Poland in a friendly billed for Warsaw, Poland.
Some reactions from twitter users after the unveiling;
