Ndidi reacted by saying “lovely, this is nice. The fans are going to love this one”, while Iwobi said it was perfect and different.
Former Eagles player Mutiu Adepoju added his voice to the new design by saying: “It is a yes, yes for me”.
Through his twitter handle @mutiuadepoju8, he added: “the kit reminds us of our jersey in USA 1994. Believe me, this kit could be our lucky charm in Russia.’’
