Nigeria NFF Unveils New Kits For National Teams Ahead October Friendlies

Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Sunday unveiled the much anticipated new kits for the national team designed by sportswear giant, Nike.

NFF President Amaju Pinnick had last month revealed that the new kits will be unveiled in October.

The kits have no similarities with the jerseys Nigeria wore at the 2018  World Cup in Russia.

The home jersey is styled green-white-green similar to the Nigeria national flag.

The new kits for the male was modelled by Super Eagles defender William Troost-Ekong, Wlfred Ndidi and Samuel Chukwueze.

While Asisat Oshosla and Rashedaat Ajibade modelled the female home and away kits.

The NFF announced the new kit unveiling via a message on it’s official Twitter account.

Pinnick had disclosed after a virtual meeting on August 30 said the new kits will be wore for the international friendlies next month.

During the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, the Super Eagles jersey was among the best of the tournament.

NFF announced in 2018 that Nike received about three million pre-orders for the new offering.

But the sportswear debunked the numbers in a tweet back in 2018.

The Super Eagles will play against Cote d’Ivoire October 9 before another friendly against Tunisia four days later in Austria.

Super Eagles’ last competitive match was against Lesotho in November 2019, a 2021 AFCON qualifier, which the Nigerian team won 4-2 in Maseru.

Their last friendly was against Brazil which ended 1-1 in October 2019 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Africa Top Sports captured how Nigerian internationals that modeled the new kit expressed their delight.
