Three teams were revealed at Nike's unveiling with football fans once again gawking at Nigeria's shirt following their spectacular 2018 World Cup design.

Nigeria's kit is set to sport an eye-catching 'Swoosh' design during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying and 2022 World Cup campaigns.

"In 2018, Naija changed the game with a collection for the ages that set a new standard for how Nike approaches federation design," read a Nike statement.

"In 2020, Nigeria picks up right where they left off with a home kit that fuses the traditional aesthetic of an agbada robe with modern football design.

"The kit's pattern was hand drawn and is highly symbolic of Nigerian heritage with nods to nobility and family. Nigeria's crest is placed centrally on the chest with a Swoosh underneath it.

"The player names and numbers integrate the eagle feather into the application. 'Naija' appears inside the neck of jersey and on the back of the socks in a new typeface."

USA and South Korea's kits have also dropped with the remaining teams set to be launched in the next few months.

Nike senior director Heidi Burgett has also confirmed that Nike will be scrapping template kits.

"We're ditching the templates. For the 2020 kits, Nike designers had 65 chassis options available to them across varying necklines, sleeves, cuffs, badge placement, etc," she said in response to a Liverpool fan.

Burgett added: "From hand-drawn prints to custom fonts, each team's look will be its own."
