World Cup 2018 kits: England, Brazil, Germany & what all the teams will wear in Russia

Comments
Goal takes a look at what we know about all the latest kits for all the teams taking part in the World Cup in Russia

The World Cup is around three months away and the finalists are all aware of their group stage opponents.

Come June this year, an array of colourful kits will be beamed into living rooms around the globe, prompting admiration, intrigue and, no doubt, the odd case of confusion.

The World Cup has been the stage for some iconic jerseys over the years and 2018 is sure to be no different.

With the full line-up of teams complete, Goal takes a look at what we know about what each team - group by group - will be wearing when they take to the field at the biggest competition in the world.

*Note that this page will be updated regularly as and when new kits are released.


Group A


Egypt

Egypt shirt

Egypt's kits for the World Cup will be made by Adidas and they have changed somewhat from the previous edition.

The home kit is predominantly red and features a subtle chequered fabric. However, unlike its predecessor, the black colouring on the shoulders and arms has been dramatically reduced.

Adidas' three stripes frame the jersey at the sides and are white in colour.

Russia

World Cup 2018 kit Russia home

Russia are hosting the World Cup and they have launched a brand new home kit to mark the occasion. 

It is produced by Adidas and has a red base with a white v-neck collar. As well as white stripes on the shoulders, there are also diagonal white blocks running from the arms to the torso.

The away kit is a white affair, but has a pointillism-style graphic inspired by the country's street culture and architecture to give the front of the shirt a burst of colour.

Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia home World Cup 2018 kit

Saudi Arabia's kits for the World Cup in Russia are produced by Nike and their home kit is plain all-white with subtle trimmings of green - the country's national colour - on the collar, badge, swoosh and numbers. According to Nike the design is a nod to the team's 1994 World Cup style.

The away kit is essentially the opposite with an all-green look with dashes of white on the socks and numbers.

Uruguay

Uruguay kit 2018

German sportswear giant Puma will make the kits for Uruguay, and have revealed a new, all-white strip for the La Celeste away strip.

Luis Suarez and Co. will wear the white jersey at the World Cup, as well as an updated home shirt which is yet to be made available to the public.

Uruguay's home kit is traditionally sky blue with a combination of black and it will be interesting to see what approach is taken with the new version when you consider the unique details on Puma's Switzerland home kit.


Group B


Iran

Sardar Azmoun Iran

Adidas produce Iran's kits and we were given a look at how they will look at the World Cup in their September qualifier against Syria.

They began the qualification campaign with a design that featured an Asiatic cheetah on the front, but they have changed to a plain design ahead of the tournament.

The home jersey is all white, with red trimmings on the collar and the Adidas stripes at the sides.

Morocco

Mbark Boussoufa of Morocco

Morocco have been with Adidas since 2012 and it looks likely that they will remain with the German suppliers for the World Cup, but no new kit has yet been revealed.

The Atlas Lions' current home kit is mostly red with green featuring on the shoulders in a nod to the colours on the nation's flag. Given that it is their first World Cup in 20 years, Adidas could potentially look to their 1998 kit, which was mostly green, for inspiration.

Portugal

GFX Cristiano Ronaldo Portugal World Cup 2018 kit

Portugal will have their World Cup kits produced by long-time partner Nike, with Cristiano Ronaldo helping launch the new jersey for the European champions.

The Euro 2016 win allows Nike to give Portugal a dash of gold in their new jersey, but is mostly Portugal's trademark deep red, with brighter sleeves and green design in the collar.

Their away kit is a white change strip, with tiny crosses giving it a burst of colour and adding a neat pattern across the body. The Nike swoosh on the away kit is Portugal's deep red, while the home shirt has a gold logo to celebrate their Euro 2016 victory.

Spain

World Cup 2018 kit Spain home

One of Adidas' main partners at the World Cup, Spain's new home kit looks to the past and it is inspired by the nation's 1994 kit.

The jersey's main colour is red, naturally, but on the right side there is a colourful yellow, blue and red design that stretches from top to bottom.

Spain's second shirt is a very light blue release, with geometric designs based on some of the country's best-loved jerseys from the 1980s. There is a hint of bright red in the kit, particularly on the shoulders in Adidas' trademark triple stripe design.

Group C


Australia

Embed only Australia World Cup 2018 kit home

Australia's new kits for the World Cup were released in early April and the home kit will see a departure from tradition, with an all-gold look being preferred to the green shorts and gold shirt combination. As well as featuring a green collar, the home jersey also has a unique green pattern on the sleeves.

The Socceroos' away kit is an all-green number, but a diagonal slash of yellow and light green features on the front of the jersey in a tribute to the 2005 edition.

Denmark

Christian Eriksen Denmark

Denmark have a long association with Hummel and recently renewed their relationship with the native sportswear manufacturer in 2016 after a 12-year spell in Adidas gear.

A new kit for the World Cup has yet to be released and it is unclear when it will be revealed, but one thing is almost guaranteed: it will feature the famous red and white chevrons on the arms.

The current Danish home kit is predominantly red, with a sprinkling of white, while the away jersey is mostly white with a dash of red.

France

Raphael Varane France World Cup 2018 kit

The France jerseys for the 2018 World Cup have now officially been revealed by Nike, and have some changes to the previous two-tone design.

Two colours will continue to be used, though the main body of the shirt will take up a darker blue than that of the neck and shoulders.

France's away kit consists of a white shirt with a detailed red and blue pattern running through, and dark blue shorts and white socks.

Peru

Peru World Cup playoff

Peru were the last team to book their place at the World Cup as they overcame New Zealand in the inter-confederational play-offs. 

Their most recent kit suppliers were Umbro, but they are set to change to Marathon from 2018 on. That deal is officially set to come into effect from the beginning of 2018, so the World Cup in June will certainly see an outing in the new gear.

Peru's home kit has become an iconic symbol for the country with the thick red sash crossing a white base since the 1930s. Considering its status, the sash is here to stay, but we will have to wait and see.


Group D


Argentina

Lionel Messi Argentina kit

Argentina will wear their traditional striped Albiceleste - white and sky blue - design for the World Cup.

Adidas have largely delved into the past when tailoring new looks for the national teams it is working with and the Argentina jersey is no different.

It is inspired by the shirt worn by the team in their successful 1993 Copa America campaign, but the Adidas stripes on the shoulders are black instead of white.

Unlike some of the other teams' away kits, Argentina's second strip is not a throwback to something they wore during the 1990s. It does have a classic feel, but is an all-new design and is a dark alternative in case of a kit clash with their classic white and sky blue home shirt.

Croatia

Croacia Camiseta Titular 2018 Croatia Home Kit

Croatia will participate in the World Cup for the fifth time when they go to Russia this summer, meaning that their iconic chequered kit will be on display.

The all-over red and white design, which has been in use for the home kit since the team first came into existence, has been altered somewhat with the checkered squares much bigger than before. Croatia's away kit is similarly checkered and there is an all new colourway of navy and black.

Iceland

Embed only Iceland World Cup 2018 kit

Iceland are making their first ever World Cup appearance in 2018 and they have an all-new kit designed for the occasion.

Their kits are produced by the Italian manufacturer Errea and the World Cup 2018 home kit was launched on March 15. It is all blue with red on the arms fading into white on the shoulders in a design that is said to be inspired by the country's famous geysers. 

Iceland's away kit is mainly white and, like the home kit, there is a mixture of colour on the arms, with blue and red fading into white at the shoulders.

Nigeria

Nigeria's kits for the World Cup are manufactured by Nike and they were launched in February 2018, around the same time as the England kits.

The new kits are drastically different, with a lighter green and white chevron-laden home kit recalling their 1994 edition, while the away kit is a darker, single shade of green.


Group E


Brazil

Neymar Brazil World Cup 2018 home kit

The Brazil kit for the World Cup was launched in March 2018 and the traditional samba yellow is more vivid than the previous edition. Indeed, the shade itself is actually a throwback to the 1970 World Cup with Nike matching the colour used by the team at that tournament. There are notches of green on the collar, with a tiny streak of blue at the back and the Nike swoosh is green.

Brazil's away kit, naturally, is blue and it features a tesselating star pattern that is intended to evoke memories of the first World Cup they won - in 1958 against Sweden - which was also the first time the team wore blue.

Costa Rica

Bryan Ruiz Costa Rica

New Balance will produce Costa Rica's kits for the World Cup 2018, but it is likely that they won't be unveiled until spring.

There may be a change from the current design, which is mostly red and features a large diagonal sash across the front with blue trims.

Switzerland

Switzerland shirt WC Puma

Switzerland wore their new Puma home kit in their World Cup play-off clash against Northern Ireland and it is somewhat of a departure from their previous edition.

There is more red on the jersey, with the white shoulders gone and, interestingly, the front incorporates a design based on a topographical map of Switzerland, with the Matterhorn situated directly above the heart.

The new away strips is an all-white jersey with red detailing, as revealed by Puma in their latest launch.

Serbia

Switzerland away strip 2018

It was thought that Serbia would be kitted out in Umbro gear at the World Cup in Russia, though a new shirt had yet to be released ahead of the tournament.

It was later revealed that they'd instead be wearing Puma, with the kit released as part of the manufacturer's update ahead of the World Cup.

The Eagles went for an all-red look for the qualification stage, with a large white collar and white trims on the sleeves. Their away jersey was all-white, but it had a different collar to the home one.


Group F


Germany

World Cup 2018 kit Germany home

Germany will be wearing a new Adidas 1990-themed kit for the World Cup. The white home jersey is a reimagination of the shirt worn by the 1990 World Cup winning team and features a design across the chest. However, unlike the inspiration, the new version is black and grey instead of the colours of the German flag.

Adidas' three stripes adorn the shoulders and, as reigning champions, Germany's kit will also have a FIFA World Cup winners badge emblazoned on the chest.

The away kit is also a 1990-inspired kit, throwing back to the famous green shirt the team wore as they beat England on penalties in Turin to advance to the final.

South Korea

Ki Sung Yeung South Korea World Cup 2018 home kit

South Korea are one of the teams who have Nike as their kit manufacturers and their World Cup kits were revealed in March.

The home kit is all red and new design has a silkier feel than the older version. Notably, the badge has changed from blue and white to black and white.

However, the national colours - red,blue and white - are prominent on the away kit, which is all white with a taegeuk pattern featuring on the front.

Mexico

World Cup 2018 kit Mexico home

Mexico's kit for the World Cup 2018 is made by Adidas and it is one of a number of designs that draws inspiration from the past.

In this case, the home jersey is modelled on the team's look at the World Cup 1994. It is predominantly a dark green colour, with small flashes of white on the arms, collar and, of course, the three stripes.

It also features a mirrored design on the sides in a lighter shade of green, which harks back to the 1990s. The away jersey is even more of a throwback, looking towards Mexico's 1970 kits with the torso featuring a horizontal version of the country's iconic flag.

Sweden

Sweden home kit 2017-18

Sweden wore their new kit when they shocked the world by knocking Italy out of the World Cup play-offs to book their place at the tournament.

Made by Adidas, it is a simple design with a yellow base and blue incorporated in the collar and at the sides, as well as in the logo.

Their away kit is the reverse of the home kit, with a blue shirt and yellow shorts. Adidas describe the colour as "Mystery Ink" due to the alternating line design on the front and back of the shirt.


Group G


Belgium

World Cup 2018 kit Belgium home

The Belgium kit for the 2018 World Cup is produced by Adidas and it is based on the design of the team's famous Euro '84 jersey.

The home kit is predominantly red and contains a retro pattern that features horizontally across the chest. At its centre lies the badge of the Royal Belgian Football Association.

Belgium's away kit is also retro-styled, with a striped-yellow shirt and black shorts. The shoulders include narrow black and red stripes, in-keeping with the Adidas branding. This is mimicked in the black shorts, with stripes of yellow, red and yellow adding a dash of colour.

England

Raheem Sterling England World Cup 2018 home kit

The England kits for the World Cup were officially revealed at the beginning of February and they are produced by Nike.

The home jersey is, of course, mainly white and the away jersey is red. Each new kit features a subtle St George cross that is incorporated on the chest.

Panama

Embed only: Panama World Cup 2018 home kit

Like Iceland, Panama are making their World Cup debut after they finished third in the CONCACAF qualiifying.

New Balance make their kits and Panama's new look was officially launched in April.

The new home kit has dispensed with the blue that previously appeared on the shoulders for an all-red look and there is a subtle pattern visible across the chest.

Their new away kit is white and unlike the home version, it does feature blue on the shoulders, as well as on the chest pattern.

Tunisia

Ghaylane Chaalali Aimen Balbouli Tunisia 2017

Tunisia's kits are manufactured by German sportswear company Uhlsport and it remains to be seen whether a new kit will be introduced for the World Cup.

The current designs were adopted midway through qualifying and are slightly different from the original Uhlsport kits.

While their national flag is mainly red, Tunisia play in a predominantly white home kit with red featuring strongly on the collar and logos. Their away kit is normally red.


Group H


Colombia

World Cup 2018 kit Colombia home

Colombia's kit for the 1990 World Cup served as the primary inspiration for the latest edition that will be worn by James Rodriguez & Co. as they strive for glory in Russia.

One of Adidas' batch, the home kit is yellow with red and blue diagonal lines featuring at the sides. The famous three stripes are on the shoulders, but they are navy instead of red.

Colombia's second strip is a bold blue and solar red combination, which contrasts strongly with the bright yellow home jersey. and like previous shirts, contains the words “Unidos Por Un Pais” ("United for a country") on the back below the collar.

Japan

World Cup 2018 kit Japan home

The new Japan kit for the World Cup 2018 is produced by Adidas, but it does not follow the brand's trend towards emulating retro looks for the upcoming tournament.

The home kit is dark blue and it features broken vertical lines on the torso that is part of a design that is supposed to recall the look of traditional samurai apparel.

Adidas' famous three stripes are on the shoulders and they are white. Above the Japan Football Association badge is the flag of Japan. Both the home shirt and the grey-and-white away kit feature special versions of the country's crest which commemorate the 20th anniversary of Japan's first ever World Cup qualification.

Poland

Robert Lewandowski Poland World Cup 2018 home kit

Nike revealed Poland's World Cup 2018 kit collection in March and the premise of their design of that of a soaring eagle in homage to the country's national animal.

The home kit is chiefly white with red around the neck but in a departure from the minimalist design used for Euro 2016 there is a diagonal fade from platinum grey to white on the chest.

In keeping with tradition the away kit is all red and the only white is the Nike swoosh and eagle. Like the home kit, there is also a diagonal fade across the chest in two tones of red.

Senegal

Senegal shirt 2018

Senegal wore a number of different kits during the qualification stage of the World Cup, with both Puma and Romai outfits appearing.

They wore a Romai kit, which featured a multi-coloured lion, in their last outing, though it remained to be seen what manufacturer will produce their kits for the tournament in Russia.

It has since been revealed, however, that they will don an all-white Puma jersey in Russia this summer, finished with a green trim.
