Meanwhile, the away kit is a classic two-tone red and white effort alluding to the Three Lions' 1966 World Cup victory.

Nike have released the new collection of England kits and related apparel that the men's national team will sport in the coming months and at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

According to the New Telegraph Online, Nike presented the kits to the Nigeria Football Federation at a ceremony in London on Wednesday.

Ndidi also sounded excited, adding "This is cultural" in apparent reference to the patterned away kit.

In the 1 minute 20 second clip, Wilfred Ndidi, John Obi Mikel, Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho are shown giving their verdict on what is a dazzling offering from Nike.

It's fair to say that Nike's designs and templates over the last couple of years haven't exactly gone down well but the latest England strips are proving very popular.

Inspired by the popular home shirt England players wore in the 1982 World Cup, many questioned why the design hadn't been used as the new home shirt.

"This is different, you know", Iwobi added, while Iheanacho seemed happy with all the designs. "Believe me, this kit could be our lucky charm in Russian Federation".

Four days later, the Eagles will also wear the new kits for another World Cup warm-up game against Serbia in London.
