Nike have released photos of Nigeria's new kit ahead of the 2018 Russian World Cup, which has taken influence from the cultural spirit of Naija - which serves to drive a desire of "healthy reserve and exuberance".

Inspired by "Naija" spirit, which according to Nike means "youthful exuberance, pride and fresh perspective on patriotism", the U.S. sporting goods manufacturer produced a kit and range of leisure wear for the African nation that has generated a storm of positive response from football fans around the world on social media.
AOIFootball.com can report that the UK Mirror has placed the unique design as the best of all the twenty countries gearing for the World Cup in Russian Federation, describing it as glorious and incredible.
The kits had some similarities with the jerseys Nigeria wore at their World Cup debut in 1994 in the United States of America.
However, the kit refuses to veer away from tradition, with the away strip using the classic all green look of Nigeria.
