Germany's World Cup Away Kit Is As Beautiful As We Hoped

Germany's World Cup Away Kit Is As Beautiful As We Hoped

The closer we get to the World Cup the more we're wondering why more teams don't up their game when it comes to kits more often, the way they have for the tournament in Russia. Germany's away kit is the latest beautiful offering.

Everyone loves a good looking kit but in recent years a lot of the offerings have looked very samey. The big companies often have a template they work to with clubs and national teams just changing them to their colour scheme.

The World Cup though has made national sides up their game though, they're obviously all out to impress us even before they get on the pitch and do their thing.

There's a lovely feel of nostalgia to a lot of the kits and Germany tapped into their strip from the 1990 World Cup in order to inspire their home shirt for Russia and now their away shirt has been leaked and it's just as nice:

Check out our video of some of our favourite kits:

Once again the kit has a distinct Italia 90 feel to it, where Germany were World Cup winners after beating England on penalties in the semi-final wearing the green shirt. That's where all the penalty hurt began.

Germany's home shirt is also a good'un, although it's not as good as the 90s version of their home shirt it must be stressed, the pattern across the front is missing the splash of colour it needs.

But overall we still can't get over why England's training top isn't their actual shirt:
