Nigeria's new kit, and accompanying collection of jackets and training tops, have been praised as 'amazing' and 'works of beauty' after Nike revealed the Super Eagles' national team collection ahead of the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Inspired by 'Naija' spirit, which according to Nike means "youthful exuberance, pride and fresh perspective on patriotism", Nike has produced a kit for the African nation that has left kit nerds reaching for their wallets.

This exuberant edition comes after Nike also unveiled England's home, away and training kits for the tournament.

"That classic identity, with a modern edge added, is imperative to the whole collection," Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director Pete Hoppins said.
