How About This For Super Eagles World Cup Kit?
Designing a Nigerian football team jersey has always seemed like one of the easiest tasks in the world of football.
One can almost imagine the thinking... ''pick a design already made for a European national team and turn it to green, and their NFF will accept it. Afterall, is it not 'Made in Nigeria? All they need to justify the choice is that it was made by a big global sporting brand.
But this is 2017 and it looks like the Super Eagles’ straightforward qualification for Russia 2018 is so joyous for Nigerians that the people are not willing to let another boring green and white kit kill their joy.
So, a London-based Nigerian designer, Andrew Randa, has come up with a design for the Super Eagles kit for the Russia 2018 World Cup.
The fans are loving it and making efforts to pressurize the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) and Nike to abandon the current kit for this one.
In fairness to Randa, his design seems to really capture the soul of the proud and vocal Nigerian football fan. He likes the emphasis placed on his eagle, he likes the depiction of strength.
But as they say, one man’s food is another man’s poison. What do you think of this design? Does it look unique and distinctively Nigerian?
If you feel so, then share the post and tag the people who can make it happen.
Biko, we want our darling Mikel, Iwobi, Akpeyi, Moses, Etebo, Ighalo, Onazi and our fine oyinbo boys to look their best in Russia.
