FIFA World Cup

Super Eagles stars endorse World Cup kit

Super Eagles quartet John Obi Mikel, Alex Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi have endorsed the new kit designed by Nike for the West Africans to don at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. 

The foursome featured in a video released by Nike on Wednesday as part of the unveiling of the outfits.

“I can see the players going crazy over this one. This is nice. You feel strong,” Mikel enthused.

Iwobi was also confounded with the design, stating:

“I love black. This is perfect. I love it.”

Ndidi couldn’t hide his amazement at seeing the jerseys as he exclaimed and said:

“It’s nice. It’s cultural. I just can’t wait.”

Iheanacho seemed quite happy with the kits but specifically commented on the off-pitch portion of the collection.

“I’m going to rock this with a black shoe or black trainers,” the forward said.

Nike revealed on their official website that the jerseys – specifically the home kit – are patterned in homage to the USA 1994 World Cup set, who were the first team to qualify for the Mundial.

The Super Eagles are expected to launch the kits in their friendly game against Poland in March 23.
