ROAD TO RUSSIA: HIT OR MISS? What Do You Make Of New Super Eagles Jerseys?

The Nigeria Football Federation launched the Super Eagles jerseys for the Russia 2018 World Cup and the response of Nigerian fans has been massive.

The new jersey designs include a patterned retro away kit and a dark green home kit as well as specially-made fans wear.


It has either been great love and admiration or intense dislike and disgust for the  kits since Wednesday’s launch in London.

  • D green is OK..BT d other colour and CH I describe.. Well..my opinion wise is a bit off colour

  • Nigeria is a dark skinned country. Making our green darker is killing our brightness. I prefer it the way it was against Algeria. Thanks

    Big questions. A big Hit for the away kit. I really love that away jersey. Its reminds me the original version of the kits that Eagles wore against England in 1995, which England won the match by 1-0 at the Wembley stadium. The video of the match still on YouTube till today.

    However, for home kits, this is below my expectations. A miss for that one. Its very similar to that jersey Eagles wore against Argentina which we won by 4-2 in year 2017. Very dark and is not our flag colour.

    For instance, Brazil will never changed their Yellow home jerseys to darker Yellow likewise Argentina. Why always Nigeria?

    Mark my words, Super Eagles will prefer to wear the away new kids to home new kids because the away jersey has everything in it.

    For example, the light green matches our flag “colour”, that is No1.

    No2, “V shape” means “Victory”

    NO3, our flag doesn’t have black on it but “Eagles” as our national team “nicknamed” is a powerful “bird” that has black nails. That is why our opponents find it so hard to defeat us when ever we played against them.

    Lastly, For the home “jersey” Sorry, I have no answer to that.

    I wish our Super Eagles of Nigeria a successful outing in Russia 2018 World cup “IN SHA ALLAH”. This is the best time to win the world cup. “SUPER EAGLES” GO Show the world it’s our time to win the trophy.

    God bless Nigeria!!!

      The light green does not match the colors on our flag.

    The all green home kit has dignity.In the end what matters is how many goals the Super Eagles score in Russia wearing whatever

  • @Omo9ja, interesting answer coming from you. Your proffering reasons for the different designs on the jersey is interesting indeed. Keep making comments funny and you will attract other readers like me to be interested in reading your comments. Kudos.
    As for me, the jerseys are new to us so they are nice. We need something new and Nike has done it. Jerseys do not necessarily need to reflect the country’s flag or whatever. Win matches and the country will automatically be popular and your jersey will not even be mentioned. Loss matches and before you even say ni(geria), they have forgotten you and your fanciful jersey. So as long as they are new to see, it is good.

  • At first glance, the all green didn’t fo for me…and after looking over and over…trust me….it’s so matured and bossy.
    The eagle with the wings Jersey…. There is not much to say about it…..it truely is 9ja. Perfect

    I don’t really like the home jersey, i feel it lacks creativity, too dark in colour (hellooooo!! we are dark skinned)and imagine the players sweating all over the home kit, it will become darker. Though dark colours conserve heat so maybe it will help to fight off the cold in russia.
    As for the away kit they got that spot on. I love it! Now that i can see the rear view from the pictures above i even love it more.
    The best thing about these jerseys is the fans wear. I’m drooling over the ankara track suit mehn… Awesome! I will wear it with pride.

  • The away kit is the bomb, cant say much about the home kit, its just too dark, i prefer the kit worn in the 4-2 win against Argentina. Can’t wait to get my hands on that away kit

  • Men d this way out kits make sentence kudos to nff Nike intact d dark green one should hence forth be our main identification jersey just my own opinion

  • Well I think the the home jersey looks cool, and will be lovely seeing the eagles wearing it during the Wcup, for the away kits, there would be a lot of excitement anytime its worn for a game. I feel good effort have been put in place to come up with this designs including the fans kits, l guess we are beginning to get somethings right….sign of greater things to come.

  • I dont like the dark green kit, it resemble a primary school refree’s kit, I prefer the green kit nigeria put on and defeated argentina by 4:2. I like the away kit, the away kit is great,

    @djch, thank you kindly. I will try my best by God’s grace. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • Luqmanov 4 years ago

    But according to NIKE and other foreign websites, the patterned jersy is the home kit. The V shapes on it represent feather. It is made to make our players look like the eagles they are called (a powerful bird!). Take a look at the pictures again, you’ll get the message

  • the answer to ur question is hit that home jersey that is dark green mean fertility it mean the super eagle are more fertile, heath, strong than ever, while the away kit is very very nice i love it has light green, white and black the light green which define how nigeria is fertile while the white which stand for peace n unity while the black for the strength of an eagle final i wish i could have the one that will be wear by mikel obi in the world cup

    I really love the away jersey too and kudos to the NNF boards and Nike company

  • oakfield 4 years ago

    @omo9ja,jersies do not necessarily have to be exactly the same as flags.the main thing is,get a very good and captivating design that would stand as a brand and distinguishly differentiate you from others,I think that’s exactly what Nike has done. Marketing and creativity in the making. We must not copy others

  • …..The home kit is very lovely…I love the power attached to the very dark green.I can imagine the players sweating it out with this jersey,you could feel the energy attached to it….That is the BOMB!!!!

  • Promise Framez 4 years ago

    The home jersey is intimidating, its powerful. The away jersey is relaxing, sweet, I Want to believe it will make the opositions feel relaxed and we can capitalise on that.

    The Nigerian team will be fired up with the home jersey, even the opposition will want to play harder because of what they can sense in the hard dark colour, making the goal difference too much in favour of Nigeria, or short against Nigeria.

    The away jersey will produce more goals for either teams.

    The jersies look childish. I remember NIKE brought a similar design in 1995, which was never used for long by Nigeria. I think NIKE can do better.

    The dark green is okay ,the other one looks too elementary.
