2020/21 Nigeria Home Shirt
The Super Eagles would surely be soaring high for their upcoming cups as they would be sporting their new 2020 Home Swoosh jerseys courtesy of Nike.The said football jersey manufactured by the American sportswear giant would be building on the success of the 2018 Naija shirt which was well received by football enthusiasts and casual fans alike.
Much like the Naija shirt, the Home Swoosh jersey certainly represents Nigeria with its predominantly green colour on its wave-like, electrifying design. The updated jersey, much like its predecessor, expertly blends the athletic aesthetics with a street casual look.
Giving the 2020 Super Eagle shirt its own identity is the orientation of the electric current-like design. Instead of going across like in the 2018 kit, the design on the new home shirt is running lengthwise, using varying shades of green to provide distinctions among the waves. On top of that, the gaps between the waves on the side of the shirt up to the sleeves showcase a bolder, darker shade of green punctuated by a brighter one near the shoulder area. The middle part is left with a lighter cream-like shade which enables the kit to showcase the Super Eagles logo in the chest area. The Swoosh is then located right below the team’s logo as if indicating that Nike is giving its stamp of approval.
The icing on the cake for this shirt is the beautifully arranged alternating triangles near the bottom sides which are most certainly derived from the aesthetics of the royalty robes in Nigeria.
2021/22 Nigeria Away Shirt
The 2020/21 away kit of Nigeria may be simpler than the vibrant Naija kit, but it is no less elegant and still brings out the best of Nigeria's culture. Deep obsidian is the base colour of the shirt, shorts, and socks, and goes to the forefront of the aesthetics. But it also highlights the details of the green collar and cuffs filled with an intricate white feather-like graphic. Onaism, a traditional artistic movement in Nigeria, is said to have inspired the said detail. The placement of logos differs from the centrality of the home strip. The away shirt instead opts with the usual right chest for the Swoosh and team crest on the left. Right below the Swoosh is the jersey number. Deep obsidian shorts and socks with the Onaism detail complete the away kit.
