Never as today the Nigeria shirt has become one of the most hyped in the world, certainly because of the design of the penultimate kit, the one presented in 2018 before the World Cup. A clear tribute, revisited in a modern way, to the shirts worn by the African team in the 90s, impossible not to notice them during global events such as the 1994 and 1998 World Cups and the 1996 Olympics, when Nigeria was the main revelation, not only for the third place but for the absolutely original look.
