The last time the Eagles turned out in those kits was back in November 1994 during an international friendly in London.
A few adjustments were made to the new design, which appear in green shirt with white sleeves, white shorts and chartreuse green socks with a horizontal strip bearing the logo of the kit manufacturer.
The new sleeves are an alternate white from the black of the old one. Also the feather prints are color alternated.
The body of the World Cup kit is a shade different taking a shamrock green – rather than the block (emerald) green – opting also for the white feather prints across the front and back.
The shorts are plain white with the Kit manufacturer’s and the FA’s logos on the right and left – but without the side tape, etched with stars as it appeared on the initial issue.
The second kit – very likely the home kit – is a block (Pine) green shirt, shorts and socks.
At the unveiling ceremony in London on Wednesday, forward Alex Iwobi modeled the kit along with one-time Falconets invitee Shola Omidiji and some other models – plus mannequins.
