Nike unveils England and Nigerian world cup kits

Nike unveiled two of its team kits months ahead of the 21st edition of the FIFA World Cup 2018 tournament, taking place June. The kits of both countries reveal clear evidence of hints from historic kits blended with a tourch of “modern fashion and culture”

England’s kits

Nike unveiled home and away kits together with a collection of matching tracksuits.

Both kits feature the Saint George’s cross on the outer back neck, while a rosette is located on the inside.

A custom typeface based on Johnston and Gil Sans fonts was designed for player names, and numbers have been moved from the centre of the shirt to below the crest to make the fabric more breathable. The home kit shows a classic look, pairing a white shirt with blue shorts – both accented by red trimming.

Nigeria’s Football kit

The home kit is based on the shirt worn by Nigeria first team to qualify for the competition in 1994. Feather-inspired patterns feature across the whole shirt – black and white for the sleeves, and green and white for the torso.

Similar pattern is also seen on Nigeria’s pre-match shirt and training apparel. Super Eagles, the team’s nickname, is stretched across the shoulders. The away kit offers a stripped-back version of its home counterpart and is made from a dark green fabric fearing a bright green crest.
