The Argentina 2014 World Cup away kit was released by AFA techincal sponsor adidas on Thursday. The new alternate jersey will be worn by Lionel Messi and the rest of La Albiceleste in their quest for a third world championship this summer.
The design of the kit combines the tones of blue with the gold from the crest. The gold color, which is present throughout the shirt, enhances its identity and commemorates the glory of Argentinian football. The away kit is completed with blue shorts and blue socks, also incorporating the vibrant gold, aligned with the jersey.
adidas Argentina has taken into account both the passion of the Argentinian people for football and the profound respect that they have for their history and symbols to conceive this jersey. This shirt is a testament to the unconditional support that the country´s national squad will get from supporters throughout the biggest challenge they will face this year: the 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL™.
The different tones of blue that make up the design of the away jersey are the same as those used on the alternative jersey of the national team in previous world cups. Just as in the home jersey, the engineering of this shirt creates a visual effect of a flag being blown by the wind.
Also like the home kit, the decrease of weight due to adizero technology makes this jersey the lightest on the market. It also provides players with better ventilation and comfort on the field during the game.
