Brazil 2014 Team Jerseys
When it comes to the World Cup, the best way to show your true fandom is with an authentic National jersey. Besides showing that your allegiance, most jerseys are themselves works of art put out by major players like Nike, Adidas and Puma. The move away from casual looking tops towards performance materials make most jerseys a lot tighter than they used to be, but they also make for a killer fashion statement when worn properly. Let’s take a look at each country’s jersey:
Overview of the 2014 World Cup Kits
Easily identifiable and yet iconic in every sense of the word, World Cup jerseys show allegiance and are a source of pride for soccer fans. Nike, Puma, Adidas make the majority, however certain nations do buck the trend with a different label. Read more below.
Jersey Details for Group A
Brazil 2014 Jerseys
Supplied by Nike, Brazil’s famous Yellow and Green jerseys have received a slight 2014 update with a smaller collar, green cuffs and sharper green numbers. Already available in most online stores, Brazil jerseys are sure to be hot ticket items seeing as how they are the host nation and these kits look damn good.
Croatia 2014 Jerseys
The red/white checks have taken over! Nike’s 2014’s trend of red/white check boxes has continued for the Croats: the sleeves are no longer white only and the numbers in the middle are a muted red with blue outline, unlike in previous years where they were solid blue. While not everyone’s cup of tea, they are amongst the most easily identifiable jerseys out there. They are set to be released for sale in February 2014.
Mexico 2014 Jerseys
Les Tri have a new updated look for Brazil. Adidas did away with the classic white number over the right-hand side, with white stripes along the arms look, in favor of a new “lightning” shape that is meant to symbolize “Mexican Power”. The Mexico logo is firmly in the middle, unlike many other national jerseys. Reviews have been mixed, but with such a fervent backing they’re sure to sell quickly regardless.
Cameroon 2014 Jerseys
Puma has blended traditional African design on Cameroon’s 2014 World Cup jersey. A much more detailed look than the bland 2010 offering, this new design features three logos side by side across the chest and a pattern across the Yellow(Away) and Dark Green (Home) versions. Still, in terms of pure individuality, Cameroon comes out a winner. These jerseys are not yet available for sale, check back soon.
Jersey Details for Group B
Spain 2014 Jerseys
Now available in stores, Spain’s 2014 World Cup kit has done away with yellow and light red in favor of a dark crimson and a beautiful gold detailing. A huge hit with the jersey buying public, this is one jersey we recommend buying, if you can still find it anywhere before the World Cup begins.
Netherlands 2014 Jerseys
Holland has gone back to a classic design for the 2014 World Cup. Their new jerseys are not yet available for purchase, but are a familiar orange color, with white logo for the Home, with a snazzy blue fade with orange trim for the Away. For our taste it’s a little too bland, but still hopefully the numbers look better than the “taped on” look of the 2010 versions.
Chile 2014 Jerseys
Embracing their national colors of blue, white, and red, the Chilean national jersey for the 2014 FIFA World Cup is rather typical, with a red body, white trim, logo and a blue/white color. They have added a white stripe down the body, so it’s better than the bland 2010 offering, but still it is not one of the better jerseys out there. Chile National jerseys are not yet available for sale.
Australia 2014 Jerseys
It’s hard to screw up a jersey with a kangaroo on it, and Nike has done a good job moving the green stripe from a horizontal one to a vertical one. It is currently on sale and while its colors of gold and dark green aren’t for all tastes, we give it a positive review.
Jersey Details for Group C
Colombia 2014 Jerseys
One of the biggest differences from past years, Columbia has marked its return to the World Cup with a snazzy striped Adidas jersey that features multiple diagonal stripes. It is currently on sale for a February shipment, but it is one of our favorites.
Greece 2014 Jerseys
Not yet released. Come back soon for more details!
Ivory Coast 2014 Jerseys
Despite adding a traditional African design across both shoulders, as opposed to just the right side as in 2010, the Ivory Coast jerseys are a solid orange with white or green with white. One of the few examples of a jersey that actually got worse over the 2010 version. Not yet available for sale.
Japan 2014 Jerseys
A very similar offering to the 2010 World Cup jersey, the Japanese national jersey, manufactured by Adidas, has added a killer accent in the form of lines emanating from their logo over the player’s heart. Although relatively basic, it has earned great reviews and is one of our favorites as it embraces tradition with modern design.
Jersey Details for Group D
Uruguay 2014 Jerseys
While the color profile remains the same, Uruguay has simplified the design with their Puma designed jersey. The collar has been redesigned and numbers will be light colored. A nice, simple design. Not yet available for sale.
Costa Rica 2014 Jerseys
Made by Lotto, the Costa Rican “La Sele” World Cup jersey has not yet been released. Stay tuned for more details.
England 2014 Jerseys
Nike has taken over the jersey design from Umbro and done a nice job in making it look a bit more befitting a major contender. They have sharpened the logo and added a nice blue collar to the Home version. England national jerseys are now available for sale.
Italy 2014 Jerseys
By adding the Italian flag to the cuffs and collar, Puma has designed a beautiful jersey for the Italian national team. They away jersey features beautiful blue stripes as well. While not yet available for sale, as soon as they do become available we’ll take 2 because they are amazing.
Jersey Details for Group E
Switzerland 2014 Jerseys
Not yet available for sale, Switzerland’s jersey is once again made by Puma but has undergone very few changes beyond a sharper red. Then again, when it ain’t broke, why fix it?
Ecuador 2014 Jerseys
Not yet available, come back soon for more details!
France 2014 Jerseys
No matter how they play, the French National team always looks good. Nike has taken over the reins from Adidas and created a true gem. Reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, as the simple Blue jersey with white logo and collar really look great. Available for sale now.
Honduras 2014 Jerseys
Created by Joma, the Honduran national jerseys have not yet been released. Come back soon!
Jersey Details for Group F
Argentina 2014 Jerseys
The only difference is a different colored stripe on the shorts. When you have a jersey this iconic however, change should be avoided. Jersey is now on sale at most online retailers.
Bosnia-Herzegovina 2014 Jerseys
Not yet released. Check back soon!
Iran 2014 Jerseys
Not yet released. Check back soon!
Nigeria 2014 Jerseys
While not yet released for sale, images have leaked of the new Adidas Nigerian jersey. Contrasting green colors, including a light green foreground on a seafoam background, with gray trimming make it perhaps the most improved of the WC team jerseys. Considering how bland their 2010 jerseys were, Nigeria should be proud of the 2014 product.
Jersey Details for Group G
Germany 2014 Jerseys
Adidas has done away with the black vertical stripe and replaced it with an orange/red chevron over the breast. Critics in 2010 said the German national team jersey made them look a tad sinister, perhaps why the 2014 version is more colorful. A little too 1980’s for our taste, but still a good looking jersey. On sale now at the FIFA store and most major online retailers.
Portugal 2014 Jerseys
Nike has simplified the Portugal jersey by doing away with the green “plate” and instead making only the cuffs and colors green. Very simple and classic, it has earned decent reviews, but is not one of the better jerseys when compared to their European brethren.
Ghana 2014 Jerseys
A beautiful African design adorns the new Ghana national jersey for 2014. Puma has really upped the ante on the Home jersey with the pattern lying on the cuffs and inside collar. Along with Nigeria’s redesign, one of the best African jerseys. Not yet available for sale. Check back soon!
United-States 2014 Jerseys
Not yet release for sale, we do know the US jersey will be designed by Nike. Check back soon for more updates!
Jersey Details for Group H
Belgium 2014 Jerseys
Wow. Designed by Burrda, 2014’s jersey is a huge improvement over previous versions. Featuring a gorgeous logo, swirl chest design and the Belgian colors throughout, it also features the national team logo faded into the background on the lower chest. Very unique and one of our favorites. Available now at the FIFA store.
Algeria 2014 Jerseys
Not yet released. Check back soon!
Russia 2014 Jerseys
Adidas has done away with the horizontal stripes, in favor of a solid maroon with gold stripes along the arms. The away jersey is a very different white with several shades of blue along the shoulders. According to most reviews, the home jersey looks too much like the Spanish national jerseys, while the Away is just kind of ugly. Jerseys are now for sale on most online retailers and the FIFA Store.
South Korea 2014 Jerseys
Nike has simplified the South Korea jersey to a solid red with blue trim, while the away is basic white with two separate colors (red and blue) for shoulders. Nothing too exciting, reviews have understandably been mixed. Jerseys are not yet on sale. Check back soon!
