England World Cup 2018 kits revealed ahead of Russian Federation tournament

England World Cup 2018 kits revealed ahead of Russian Federation tournament

Nike, the official designer of Nigeria's Russian Federation 2018 World Cup kits, has released a behind the scene revealing of the kits to the Super Eagles players.

The home kit is white with blue shorts and a red trim, whereas the away kit is red with white shorts - in a nod to the kit England wore during their famous 1966 World Cup victory.

Nike is the official kits sponsor of Nigeria's national teams.

As was leaked earlier in the week, the home strip sees a return to the traditional white shirt/navy shorts/white socks arrangement, though there is little of note beyond that.


Interestingly, the lettering used is a custom-created font but the design was inspired by Johnston and Gil Sans, two "quintessentially English" fonts that have been used on both overground railways and the London Underground for decades.

Nike Football Apparel Senior Design Director Pete Hoppins said, "that classic identity, with a modern edge added, is imperative to the whole collection".

Here's how Twitter reacted to the new kits.

While others actually thought the new training kit, which appears to be a homage to the 1982 kit adorned by Glenn Hoddle and co, should be the home kit.
