While not all of the kits that will be worn at Euro 2012 this summer have been unveiled, this past week has seen a whole bunch released. We’re here to sum up the great, the good and the boring kits, just in case you missed one!
Sweden Home Kit
Our friends over at Football Shirts. discovered this image of the kit that Sweden will be wearing in Polkraine. Sweden were drawn into group D along with France, England and Ukraine meaning it won’t be an easy task for the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Kim Kallstrom to make it to the next round! The kit itself is a smart new release from Umbro that won’t turn too many heads.
Ukraine Away Kit
Ukraine gained automatic qualification into Euro 2012 and were drawn with Sweden, England and France in group D. This new away kit takes inspiration from Ukrainian tradition as it features ornaments combined to create the band on the chest of the kit. The collar also has a slogan that reads “Go, Ukraine!” Overall a great looking kit from adidas!
Greece Home and Away Kit
The European Champions in 2004, Greece, unveiled both their home and away kits this past week. The home and away shirts are almost identical apart from a couple of design elements and their colour. Both feature a cross that intersects the national team’s crest, while the white home kit features a v neck collar while the away shirt features a crew neck collar. We have to admit though, we’re loving that goalkeeper kit!
England Home Kit
Umbro’s release of England’s latest home kit, in typical English fashion, received the most hype and coverage but ultimately was very ordinary (sorry, I couldn’t resist). The new home kit is nothing spectacular and marks the first time ever that an England kit has been purely red and white.
Czech Rebublic Away
Images of the Czech Republic’s away kit also appeared on the web this past week(ish). The kit is predominantly white but features a red Puma logo and around the collar as well as blue sleeve cuffs. The Czech Republic were drawn in group A along with Russia, Greece and Poland meaning that Thomas Rosicky and co. definitely stand a chance of progressing into the last eight.
It’s also worth mentioning…
Both the Netherland’s and France’s away kits were officially released this week, despite the fact that official images had leaked a couple weeks back. Nike have done a brilliant job on both kits, and the Dutch away may be our favourite so far!
