Nike and Nigeria have dropped off another iconic collection for the Super Eagles, two years after changing the face of kit culture forever with the country’s 2018 release.

Nigeria’s wavey collection for 2020 is headlined by an all-new home kit that that fuses the traditional aesthetic of an agbada robe with contemporary football and street style influences. The jersey’s colourful angular pattern was hand drawn and is symbolic of Nigerian culture’s love of family and nobility.

Nigeria’s crest is placed centrally on the chest with a Swoosh underneath it. The player names and numbers integrate the eagle feather into the application, while “Naija” appears inside the neck of jersey and on the back of the socks in a new typeface.

The ultra-clean away kit is inspired by Onaism, a traditional artistic movement central to Nigerian design and craft represented in the trim details. A distorted eagle feather design features prominently in the fabric, while a green and white chevron design highlights the V-neck collar.

Nike are set to follow the jerseys up with a broader Naija collection that will include apparel including a poncho, vest, dress and more.
