NFF, Nike unveil Eagles’ jersey in London
February 07th, 2018
The Super Eagles’ World Cup jersey is expected to be unveiled today (Wednesday) at a ceremony in London, England.
The Nigeria Football Federation had told journalists last month that the national team would kick start their preparation for Russia 2018 with the unveiling of the kits for the tournament.
Kit sponsors Nike will do the presentation in London and a couple of Super Eagles players are expected to grace the occasion.
Reports suggested the kits had some similarities with the jerseys Nigeria wore on the World Cup debut in 1994 in the United States of America.
That should evoke some nostalgia as the Eagles were barely minutes away from reaching the quarterfinal against eventual finalists Italy in the USA.
The Eagles were kitted by Adidas for the 2010 and 2014 editions of World Cup.
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.
Four days later, the Eagles will also wear the new kits for another World Cup warm-up game against Serbia in London.
