All the reaction as England's World Cup kit is revealed

Share

Captain John Mikel Obi, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho all modelled the new kits.

The jerseys feature the home kits that pay tribute to the 1994 squad, which they wore during the US '94 World Cup qualifiers.

The home shirt sees the pale blue/off-grey sleeves of the 2016-17 shirt dispensed with in favour of a return to a plain, simplistic all-white affair, complete with St George's-themed trim.

The home shirt is all-green, this one darker than usual.

According to the New Telegraph Online, Nike presented the kits to the Nigeria Football Federation at a ceremony in London on Wednesday.

Expressing excitement over the new jerseys, Ndidi added, "This is cultural".

Nigeria are using Nike as their kit manufacturer after having been fitted by Adidas for their last two World Cup campaigns - in 2010 and 2014. They are expected to wear the jersey for the first time when they face Poland in a pre-World Cup friendly on March 23. "I see the players going insane for this one", with Iheanacho, at the sight of the jerseys shown to them, adding that it was attractive.

Iwobi said it was ideal and different.

The new England kits carry on the succession of attractive Three Lions uniforms Nike have produced since they became England's kit maker in a £400m deal in 2016.
