The new Super Eagles kits unveiled by designers Nike and the Nigeria Football Federation on Wednesday, has elicited reactions from Nigerians on Twitter.
NFF president, Amaju Pinnick, in a chat with our correspondent, had described the jerseys as an improvement on the ones worn by the Eagles in 2018 and 2019.
But while some fans praised the kits, saying they were beautiful, others labelled them as below quality.
Among those who praised the design was Seun Obalola, who said, “Lovely jersey, some Nigerians that don’t really know what they want will still come and criticise it.”
“Amazing design, our new sponsor makes us good looking on the pitch,” Abdulrahman Barnawi added.
According to Danielle Enonche, many Nigerians were only criticising the jerseys because they were not yet endorsed by big stars.
“People saying the green and white isn’t good will change their minds the moment their favourite celebrity rocks it. I remember when the last ones were unveiled, many people criticised it until it began to make wave internationally,” Enonche stated.
Among those who criticised the new jersey was Sam Uche, who said, “What is this rubbish Nike IT students designed for the NFF and you’re smiling that you’re wearing this for Africa Cup of Nations. Don’t we know the difference between football jersey and inter house sports wear. Thumbs down for this Super Eagles kit.”
“Nike you can do better than this now,” Ijoma Chijioke tweeted.
