adidas has released the primary kit that will be worn by superstar Lionel Messi and the rest of the at 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. It will be on sale at World Soccer Shop, UK Soccer Shop, Lovell Soccer, Pro:Direct Soccer, Subside Sports and Kitbag.
The Argentina 2018 World Cup home kit is a celebration of the Asociación del Fútbol Argentino (AFA) 125th year anniversary. The shirt pays tribute to the anniversary by subtly incorporating laurels, a key element of the Argentinian coat of arms and the AFA crest, into the iconic blue and white stripes.
The laurels are executed in a modern pixel optic to offer a contemporary look. The jersey features an embossed sign-off combined of laurels and the number 125. There are two gold stars above the badge in celebration of the country’s FIFA World Cup wins in 1978 and 1986.
La Albiceleste (The White and Sky Blue) will debut their 2018 adidas home kit during their international friendlies against fellow World Cup teams Russia and Nigeria over the course of the next week.
