It was another gorgeous design from Nike and similar to the 2018 World Cup jersey that brought the whole world to its feet.
Nigeria are known for their flair. Both with the ball at their feet and the jerseys they wear. The country has a long history of the most stylish jerseys designs and Nike have not let us down with the latest offering.
The kit supplier have released the USA, Korea and Nigerian shirts after “deep cultural immersions” in which they “collaborated with each federation to ensure the designs truly resonated.”
Nike say Nigeria’s kit “fuses the traditional aesthetic of an agbada robe with modern football design. The kit’s pattern was hand drawn and is highly symbolic of Nigerian heritage with nods to nobility and family.”
“The away kit is inspired by Onaism, a traditional artistic movement central to Nigerian design and craft represented in the trim details. An eagle feather aesthetic, creatively distorted, continuously repeats in ascending size to create a visual impact,” according to Nike.
