Amokachi Hopes World Cup Jersey Brings More Honor
The African champions Super Eagles of Nigeria will hope for more glory wearing their new World Cup kits, according to assistant coach Daniel Amokachi on thursday, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) unveiled the kits to be worn by the Eagles at Brazil 2014. The home kit is in two pleasingly fresh shades of green from the current jersey, while the away kit is white with trimmings of green and red numbering.
“Our prayer is that the successes we have enjoyed so far continue with this new kit,” Amokachi said at the public presentation of the World Cup jersey in Abuja yesterday. “The jersey reminds us of the playing days of my boss “The Big Boss” in the 80’s.
“It has the shade of green they used back then and a touch of the green we used in Atlanta 96.” CHAN MVP Ejike Uzoenyi was one of the first Eagles stars to model the new kits.
“The jersey is awesome. It feels light on the skin and it’s top quality,” he applauded. “I like its texture and cannot wait to wear it for action next week.”
The Super Eagles of Nigeria will on Wednesday in Atlanta Georgia, in the United States of America launch the jersey in a World Cup warm-up against Mexico.
