Nigeria's New World Cup Kit Is Here and We're Obsessed
We want one of each, please.
Nigeria's first match against Croatia in the 2018 World Cup isn't until June 16, but their new kits already has us excited to root for the African countries vying to dominate the most anticipated football tournament this summer.
Nike unveiled the Super Eagles' kit Wednesday, and the designs are meant to be a nod to the country's past glory days. The badge was recolored to honor the 1996 Dream Team and the striped design is an ode to Nigeria's 1994 jersey—the first year they participated in the World Cup, High Snobiety says.
The hype around the kits are real, to say the least.
