It’s more than a little galling that while Nike are perfectly content to furnish England with yet another generic dullard of a shirt, they appear to have provided Nigeria with a truly stunning collection of retina-jangling World Cup fare.
Indeed, leaked images of the Nike training/travelling kit that the Super Eagles will be wearing in Russia this coming summer and put it this way: it’s unlikely to be surpassed between now and the start of the tournament.
The training shirt itself is comparatively sedate, predominantly white with an energetic green zig-zag motif…
Then comes the ‘anthem jacket’, which is busy enough to give even those with the sturdiest constitution a bad case of chronic motion sickness….
However, the accompanying tracksuit really does represent the piece de resistance, borrowing as it does a gaudy floral motif last seen on the hall carpet at your nan’s old house…
Would you look at those Bobby Dazzlers! Astounding. Pies are getting serious flock wallpaper vibes and we wholeheartedly approve.
In fact, we’d pay good money to see the likes of Harry Kane and Jordan Henderson awkwardly clambering off the team bus, desperately trying to appear focused and stoney-faced while dressed head to toe in lurid peacock prints.
Come on, Nike. Make. It. So.
