It’s not even 2020 yet and the proposed new Super Eagles kit is already dominating conversations. While Nike’s team is currently working out the look of the upcoming kit, an independent artist has come up with a design he really wants Nike to consider adopting.
Called ‘The Eagle's Wings’ – a tribute to the fact that the players fly on the wings of 186 million Nigerians – the kit was designed by Uche Osoka a year ago. Expectedly using green and white as the primary colours, the key focus of this design is the unmistakable image of a flying eagle.
Aside from the fact that the two variations (which are supposed to be home and away) look too similar, the design looks sellable. At any rate, the artist has Nike’s design team to beat. Remember that the team put together the world-famous Super Eagles World Cup kit, which sold out in minutes.
So, now that we’ve seen what a fan has done, we’re looking forward to seeing what Nike has in store for us come 2020.
