These Nigerian Super Eagles World Cup kits have broken the internet

Nigeria became the first African country to qualify for this summer's World Cup finals when Arsenal's Alex Iwobi scored the 73rd minute victor against Zambia; and ever since, the country - much like the rest of the world - looks on in excitement at football's biggest global tournament.

Sports manufacturers Nike on Wednesday in faraway London unveiled the Super Eagles' home and away kits for the 2018 World Cup.

The new home kit features the customary white shirt with blue shorts and red detailing.

"A constant in Nigeria is an endearing love of football", NFF President Amaju Pinnick, told Nike's official website.

Former Eagles player, Mutiu Adepoju, added his voice to the new design by saying: "It is a yes, yes for me".

When it comes to good design, Nike knows how to just do it.

England have unleashed their new kit which will they will hope inspire them to World Cup glory in Russian Federation this summer. We are also introduced to the athlete journey pieces which we'll likely see our players wear off the pitch.

Gernot Rohr's men will wear the shirts for the first time on March 23 when they face Poland in a friendly in Warsaw.

The question remains, of course, whether the team can do anything on the pitch of note at the World Cup to force any kind of affection off it.
