The home kit pays subtle homage to Nigeria’s ‘94 shirt, worn by Nigeria’s first team to the world cup and It carries a familiar badge modelled after the 1996 gold medal-winning Dream Team while honouring the 1994 shirt won by the national team.Image result for nigerian super eagles kit

Those combination makes the kit unique and beautiful, it invokes emotions and a reminder of the good days of the Nation Nigeria and kind of offers hope for the future that perhaps maybe glory day can still return to the troubled African giant.

Nike’s Football Design Director, Dan Farron said in designing Nigeria’s kit, the goal was to tap into the attitude of the nation while keeping in mind the full identities of players.

Don’t worry too much guys if you can’t get them now they will be available from the street vendors on the corners of Lagos soon, if not there already.
