Chile have officially released their new home and away kits for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil ahead of their friendly against Germany this week.
Confirming our previous leak, the new Chile home shirt features the nation’s trademark red colour along with white and blue trim on the collar, sides and sleeve hems. The home shirt pays homage to Chilean patriotism as it features the first line of the Chilean national anthem â€œPuro, Chile, es tu cielo azuladoâ€ inside the neck region.
The Chilean national flag is printed in the nape of the shirt and the design of the collar is traditional styled inspired by past Chile football shirts. Chile player Marcos GonzÃ¡lez unveiled the new Chile home shirt and he said, “Our new kit looks good and with the added technical features we will go on pitch with the confidence that we can perform to our best. The group stage is going to be a challenge as we have the title holders Spain in our group, but we are ready to take them on and make Chile proud.”
The new Chile away shirt uses the same template as the home shirt but coloured in an elegant white along with red and blue trim on the collar, sleeve hems and sides. Like on the home shirt the first line of the Chilean national anthem is printed on the back of the neck inside the shirt.
The new Chile home shirt will be debuted against Germany this week in an international friendly. Chile face a tough task if they want to progress to the Round of 16 at the World Cup as they will have to play the likes of Spain, Netherlands and Australia.
