The away kit is all-grey with the pitch green and white patterns in the V-shaped collar and sleeves.
The new designs came two years after Nike unveiled the Super Eagles jerseys for the 2018 FIFA World Cup to instant success.
It will be the third time Nike will come with new designs for Nigeria’s national teams since they became kit sponsors of the NFF in April 2015.
