Stunning Nigeria 2018 World Cup Kit Re-Stocked Again
Update: The Nike Nigeria 2018 shirt is back in stock on Nike.com! A full size run is available at the moment.
Read our original article below:
In an interesting turn of events, we might see the spectacular Nigeria 2018 World Cup jersey make a return and be available to buy again after it very quickly sold out last year.
This is thanks to the fact that the Nigeria women's national team will use the shirt at the World Cup this summer. So far, Nike has confirmed that the Nigeria '2019' women's home shirt will be available to buy from June.
Like the Super Eagles in 2018, Nigeria's women will wear a jersey that's become an instant classic. The home strip pays subtle homage to Nigeria’s ’94 shirt (worn by Nigeria's first men's team to qualify) with its eagle wing-inspired black-and-white sleeve and green torso. Those elements are supercharged through an abstracted feather pattern and hyper colors that extend a power capable of turning heads on and off pitch.
"Be ready for the launch of this historic kit in June," Nike's announcement reads.
It remains to be seen whether the men's version will also be re-launched for the occasion. However, there are several points that support this possibility.
First, other major Nike 2019 Women's World Cup kits were launched in men's sizes, including England and France. Additionally, Nike recently updated the picture on the page for the 2018 men's home shirt, which now looks like this:
The same style of image can be seen on Nike's most recently launched jerseys, including the aforementioned Women's World Cup cuts. And what would be the point in updating this if the shirt remained unavailable to buy.
As you can see, there's a good chance that genuine (there's no shortage of fakes) Nigeria 2018 World Cup shirts will be available for purchase shortly.
