It may not be officially on sale yet but stores in certain parts of Asia are already making Nike’s new Nigeria jersey available for fans
The Super Eagles’ Russia 2018 World Cup jerseys won millions of hearts the world over for its daring and dashing designs, and South African football lovers are leading the way in dorning Nike’s latest works for the African giants.
As per FootyHeadlines, Nigeria’s 2020-21 home and away kit has been spotted in a store in South Korea, and it could be the talk of the town for many weeks to come.
Days to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, Nike released this stunning beauty to the public, and Nigerians, as well as non-Nigerians, went absolutely mad for it.
More than three million people reportedly pre-ordered the shirt, and it was a fantastic sight to find several others queue in front of Nike’s flagship store in London to get their hands on the stunning outfit.
This latest design is posed to be even more popular.
As explained on FootyHeadlines, this new vintage is “inspired by Onaism, a traditional artistic movement in Nigeria, the Nike Nigeria 2020 away jersey features an intriguing feather graphic detail on the cuffs, collar, and lateral stripes, which are zig-zag shaped.”
Hand-drawn and derived from traditional Nigerian Agbada robes, the delightful design incorporates several different hues of green while featuring subtle light grey motifs on the white central body.
The overall effect is simply breathtaking, and this new kit could go on to break the astounding sales figures of the previous uniform when officially put up for sale.
