England unveil fresh World Cup kits

England unveil fresh World Cup kits

Nigeria may not be one of the bookies favourites to lift the 2018 World Cup at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on July 15 but it's unlikely any other competing nation will generate a similar level of excitement and positive reaction after the Nigerian FA and Nike launched the playing kit Salisu Yusuf's men will use in Russian Federation.

The designs will ignite memories of the patterned Adidas jersey the Super Eagles wore at the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations in Tunisia and their first World Cup in the United States of America that same year.

In the 1 minute 20 second clip, Wilfred Ndidi, John Obi Mikel, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho are shown giving their verdict on what is a dazzling offering from Nike. In comes a plain but sharp white shirt with blue shorts and white socks.

"This is different, you know", Iwobi added, while Iheanacho added saying "you know I love black, so this is ideal".

While Nike's decision to return the home shirt to a more traditional looking design has been well received, there was some disappointment amongst Three Lions supporters that the new prematch shirt - also unveiled on Wednesday - hadn't been used as the a match shirt instead.

"When football is on, everything stops".

As design elements, each of these iconic emblems plays a prominent role in the England Football Association's 2018 collection. "Moreover, they celebrate everything we relish about our culture".

The kit will be worn by the men's team at this year's World Cup in Russian Federation and much of the reaction to it has been positive.

"We started to see trends in attitude and energy connecting the athletes to music, fashion and more".

Nigeria are in Group D alongside Argentina, Croatia and Iceland.
