Super Eagles To Debut New Nike Kit Against Algeria

0 22

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will wear their new jersey in Saturday’s FIFA World Cup Qualifier clash against Algeria.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) signed a three-and-half -year contract with American sportswear company Nike worth $3.75m.

The green shirt, which has white ribbing around the back collar, comes with Nike’s Dri-FIT technology.

The Dri-FIT technology, which keeps players cooler, drier and more comfortable, draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the shirts and shorts, where it quickly evaporates.

“Looking forward to playing in our new kit against Algeria on Saturday,” Nigeria and Arsenal forward, Alex Iwobi tweeted.

Nigeria U23 team were the first side to put on the new Nike kit at the 2016 Rio Olympics where they won the bronze medal.
