Super Eagles stars Mikel Obi, Wilfred Ndidi, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho were seen reviewing the new designs, which also included those made for Nigerian fans.

The home shirt is all-green, this one darker than usual.

While reviewing the designs, Mikel said: “I can see the players going crazy over this one.”

Ndidi also sounded excited, adding “This is cultural” in apparent reference to the patterned away kit.download (1)

“This is different, you know,” Iwobi added, while Iheanacho seemed happy with all the designs.

The Super Eagles wore Adidas jerseys at the last World Cup but the kit makers and the Nigeria Football Federation severed their relationship soon after.

Nike officially unveiled the playing jerseys a ceremony in London.

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.
