ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) — Nigeria has unveiled new lime-green jerseys it will wear at the World Cup in Brazil.

The lighter shade with white stripes across the shoulders is a move away from the Africa champion's traditional racing green.

Nigerian federation officials said at the launch on Thursday that the Super Eagles will wear the new design by Adidas for the first time in a friendly against Mexico in Atlanta on Wednesday.
