Belgium has finally followed suit and unveils its 2022 World Cup home kit from adidas, weeks after most of the brand’s associations had announced their respective primary and alternate shirts. With most the revealed kits back then sporting bespoke designs (with the some of the said adidas jerseys already front-runners for kit of the tournament), there’s a little bit of added pressure for the nation to deliver a stylish outfit of its own. And they surely did not disappoint!
On top of the already vivid shade of the red body-black sleeves combination, Belgium’s 2022 World Cup home kit adds a fiery graphic along the edge of the sleeves, doubling down on its nickname as the Red Devils. Yes, the nickname that is usually associated with the red half of Manchester is actually carried on by FIFA’s World Number 2 (its ranking at the moment of this writing). It’s an apt symbolism of how the players wear their football passion on their sleeves, as well as the hope that this era of Belgian talent could finally produce its first-ever World Cup title.
