Argentina 2018 Shirts



Argentina play their home games in strip comprising blue shirts with white stripes down them, the shirt is worn by one of the most successful national football teams, having won two World Cups and one Olympic Title. Argentina has appeared in four World Cup finals, including the first final in 1930, which they lost 4-2 to Uruguay. They won the final, when they next got there in 1978, beating the Netherlands 3-1 on home soil and also won in 1986 captained by Diego Maradona, with a 3-2 victory over West Germany. Their last final was in 1990, which they lost 1-0 to West Germany.

The Argentina national football team played their first international against Uruguay in Montevideo, Uruguay on the 16 May 1901 winning 3-2. They play their home games in Buenos Aires.

Argentina have had several iconic players to play for the side including Diego Maradona, Gabriel Batistuta, Lionel Messi, Mario Kempes, Hernan Crespo, Javier Mascherano, Javier Zanetti and Daniel Passarella.

Nicknamed the 'La Albiceleste', Argentina are one of the best international teams in South America and boast several world class players including Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Javier Mascherano. Argentina wear sky blue and white striped shirts with black shorts and white socks and are manufactured by adidas, the away shirt is navy blue with a sky blue hoop around the chest. Argentina are graced to have won the FIFA World Cup on two occasions where Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi are known as two of the greatest players to play the game.

World Cup Kits

Argentina's home kit for the 2014 World Cup features their traditional sky blue and white stripes but will this time be accompanied by white shorts and socks in a major step away from tradition. Adidas' logo and stripes stand out as part of the design's black detailing, which can also be seen on the hem of the sleeves and around the badge. A gradient design also sees the stripes lighten towards the base of the shirt and a gold stripe travels across the reverse and down both sides of the shirt, while a two tone sky blue hoop adds individuality to the team's otherwise plain socks.

Argentina have been very consistent in their shirt design over the years, with their sky blue and white stripes having been in place since their first World Cup in 1930. At that competition the team played in dark blue shorts but ever since the side have stuck to black shorts and for all competitions since 1978, white socks.

The most famous Argentina kit is the one where everyone pictures Diego Maradona in Mexico 86 holding the nation's second World Cup trophy. With thick stripes and a white rounded collar, the design of the shirt was simple but effective. Black shorts with white trim and white socks with thin blue hoops near the top completed the ensemble.

Argentina's away kit combines two tones of blue with the gold from the crest. The gold colour, which is present throughout the shirt, enhances it's identity and commemorates the glory of Argentine football. The different tones of blue that are implemented in the design of the away shirt are the same as those used on the alternative shirt of the national team in previous World Cups.

In the 70's the Argentina home kits were supplied by adidas, then Le Coq Sportif in the 80's and a return back to adidas in the 90's which still remains today.

In terms of away kits Argentina have been super consistent using wither dark blue or white colours which is usually accompanied with white and sky blue trim. With adidas currently manufacturing the shirts they have featured their signature adidas stripes on both home and away shirts.

Little has changed over the past 75 years where small alterations have been made, including the introductions of a watermark in 1994 and green trim on the shoulders in 1998 but the classic and simple canary yellow display has been the name of the game for the world's most recognisable shirt.
