The Super Eagles' new kits for the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup were unveiled by Sports manufacturers Nike in London on Wednesday.

The new England kits are to go on sale next month, around the time of the next global break where the team will be wearing them for the first time.

In the video we see captain Jon Mikel Obi, Wilfred Ndidi, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho admire the jerseys.

The away kit, a neon and white retro design on the body, and dark green chevrons on a white background on the arms, received a more muted response.

Nigeria became the first African country to qualify for this summer's World Cup finals when Arsenal's Alex Iwobi scored the 73rd minute victor against Zambia; and ever since, the country - much like the rest of the world - looks on in excitement at football's biggest worldwide tournament.

Brought to life by Nike, the team behind the jersey is however said to have been Nigerian. "When football is on, everything stops".

When it comes to good design, Nike knows how to just do it. "We built this kit and collection based on the players' full identities". "They are part of a resoundingly cool culture".

Inspired by "Naija" spirit, which according to Nike means "youthful exuberance, pride and fresh perspective on patriotism", the United States 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.

The home kit is white with blue shorts and a red trim, whereas the away kit is red with white shorts - in a nod to the kit England wore during their famous 1966 World Cup victory.
