It won’t be long before the qualification for Euro 2016 kicks off. That means it also won’t be long before we start seeing the unveiling of the newest national team kits. Nike get things rolling, by launching two of the biggest nations away-shirts – Holland and Portugal. We take a look at them both and zero in on Portugal here.
If you’re Portuguese, you probably just want to forget the last tournament ever happened and look forward to the next. The World Cup performance bordered on the scandalous and they will do well to forget it in a hurry. Now Nike help Cristiano Ronaldo & Co. move on, by supplying them with this fresh new shirt.
Nike continue in the same tone as they have since the release of their Shine Through collection in December. The shirt is predominantly black, but Nike have spiced things up by incorporating the nations red and green colours, in a visually bold expression that represents the youthful and exuberant nature of the Portuguese style of play brilliantly.
The shirt is naturally made with the newest technological specifications, which include Dri-FIT, laser-carved ventilation holes and a 3D scanning technique that helps give you the best possible fit. This away-shirt will be worn by Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani and Moutinho, as they fight their way to Euro 2016.
Nike are known for making modern and timeless designs and Portugal’s new away-shirt is yet another example of them still having that magic touch. You can already now pre-order the shirt right here.
