Inspired by the popular home shirt England players wore in the 1982 World Cup, many questioned why the design hadn't been used as the new home shirt.

"With Nigeria, we wanted to tap into the attitude of the nation", said Dan Farron, Nike Football Design Director, in the kit's press release.

"When football is on, everything stops". They are expected to wear the jersey for the first time when they face Poland in a pre-World Cup friendly on March 23.

The Super Eagles' World Cup jersey was modelled by Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi while Sophia Omidiji modelled the Super Falcons' kit. "Moreover, they celebrate everything we relish about our culture". "I see the players going insane for this one", with Iheanacho, at the sight of the jerseys shown to them, adding that it was lovely.

Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli has warned the Super Eagles they will have their hands full when they battle at this year's World Cup, warning that Lionel Messi will be in killer form.

Ndidi also sounded excited, adding "This is cultural" in apparent reference to the patterned away kit.

Ndidi reacted by saying "lovely, this is nice".

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

"When I first saw the new kit, I was like, 'Wow, this is sick!"
