New England World Cup kit not a patch on Nigeria's

New England World Cup kit not a patch on Nigeria's

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.

At an event in London today with The18 on hand, Nike released the 2018 England World Cup kits.

The Super Eagles' World Cup jersey was modelled by Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi while Sophia Omidiji modelled the Super Falcons' kit. They root the kit in history, and when married to Nike's latest game-changing kit innovation, fast-forward tradition into an emboldened present.

Ndidi also sounded excited, adding "This is cultural" in apparent reference to the patterned away kit.

They will wear the shirts for the first time on March 23 when they face Poland in a friendly in Warsaw.

"I can see the players going insane over this one", Mikel said when he was shown the national side's home shirt, in Nigeria's famous dark green with an eye-catching neon logo.

Ndidi reacted by saying "lovely, this is nice".

The jerseys designed by Nike, feature some designs on the Kit which was worn by the first Nigerian team to qualify for the World Cup in 1994.

Some even thought the kits might inspire something truly remarkable in Russian Federation.

Each kit features three of the symbols most closely associated with the England team - an English rose, the St George's Cross and the Three Lions crest.
