Nike unveils new Eagles kit for Russian Federation 2018 in London

Nike unveils new Eagles kit for Russian Federation 2018 in London

The Super Eagles wore Adidas jerseys at the last World Cup but the kit makers and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) parted ways soon after.

Nike is the official kits sponsor of Nigeria's national teams.

Captain John Mikel Obi, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho all modelled the new kits.

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.

Deputy dies, three others hospitalized after shooting
Authorities say a auto theft suspect fired a semi-automatic handgun during a shootout that left a Colorado sheriff's deputy dead. Adams County sheriff's Deputy Heath Gumm, 31, died January 24 after being shot while chasing a suspect, AP reports.

While reviewing the designs, Mikel said: "I can see the players going insane over this one". They root the kit in history, and when married to Nike's latest game-changing kit innovation, fast-forward tradition into an emboldened present.

Iwobi said it was flawless and different. "Moreover, they celebrate everything we relish about our culture". We built this kit and collection based on the players' full identities.

The home kit is well - white - with a minute red trim around the neck and features blue shorts, while the away kit is red with white shorts in a nod to the kit worn in the 1966 final. Two-time world champions, Argentina will also face Iceland and Croatia in the preliminary round in Russian Federation.

The Eagles are expected to launch these kits on March 23 when they face fellow World Cup finalists Poland in a pre-World Cup friendly.
