Here we have the official imagery for the new Japanese national team shirt for 2014, that we will see the Samurai Blue wear in Brazil next summer. They qualified for the World Cup topping Group B of the AFC World Cup qualification fourth round.
They will wear the new kit for the first time against Holland, when they play them at the Cristal Arena in Genk, Belgium. Japan will then play Belgium on the 19th their second fixture in the November international window.
Japan wear blue shirts, rather than the red from their flag, due having won wearing a blue kit at the 1936 Summer Olympics, creating a natinal football superstition. They won that match 3â€“2 in their first major international competition.
