Whenever a football kit is unveiled, you know the World Cup is just around the corner. Earlier this week, Nike released all his home and away kits for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Kits from Brazil, Portugal, France, Holland, England and others have been announced, some better than others.
See all the home and away kits you’ll see at this year’s World Cup from Nike and the national soccer teams.
England Home & Away Kit
There was controversy over the release of the England shirts as the home and away shirts were leaked by various retailers and outlets before the official England FA announced them.
The Home England shirt featured a blue gradient color on the sleeves and was a hit-and-miss design among fans.
The aways are collared red and, interestingly, carry light blue Nike and England crest badges respectively.
brazil home shirt
The Brazilian home shirt is yellow with a matching pattern on the inside of the shirt and a badge with the word Brazil on the front. It has green and blue trim, and the yellow looks brighter and paler than the previous shirt.
Brazil’s away shirt appears to be a pale mid-blue color with a faded green animal print on the sleeves.
Portugal opted for red and green shirts with a little twist. There is a green quarter-style section at the bottom for most of the red shirt.
There are pros and cons to this one, but I think I like it because it actually shows something a little different.
For the away kit, the Portuguese shirt looks white with the green and red of the Portuguese flag striped down the middle of the shirt. There is a possibility.
Holland or Holland is synonymous with orange kits, but this one just didn’t work out.
It may look different on the pitch, but I don’t like this kit at all.
Blue away shirts are nothing new for the Dutch and this is the away kit they will wear in Qatar 2022.
The French home shirt for 2022 is very simple and to the point. Plain navy blue with a gold patch on the front and a one-button collar. This one is pretty smart and bears little resemblance to a football shirt.
France again opts for the traditional away shirt color of white. It has a tonal pattern all over and is supported by a blue badge.
Crazy pattern kits have been designed for Nigeria at this World Cup as well, will they be as popular as they were in 2018? Impressive and not to be missed.
Nigeria has simplified the away kit a bit, but still has some repeating patterns on the sleeves. The shirt is mostly white with black pattern on the sleeves and green edging.
The red of the Turkish strip is classic, but there is also a matching geometric print in this. I think it really makes the shirt stand out and looks really nice. I am making a shirt.
White and red are the traditional Turkish away colors and we’ll see that in 2022. A plain white shirt with a red horizontal stripe in the middle with red bands around the sleeves and collar.
The Poland Home Shirt features a classic white background with a red crest and Nike Swoosh on the front. White and gray patterned sleeves that look great on a clean white shirt.
Another team that sticks to the away color classic, the Poland away shirt is red with white detailing on the sleeves and neckline.
Croatia sees check patterns all the time, but usually with a twist in design, and 2022 is no exception. This year’s plaid pattern is a little random, but I think it looks pretty good.
Croatia’s away shirt has a dark blue top with a light blue checked geometric fade style on the top left quarter of the shirt and on the left sleeve. Very distinctive and one of the coolest kits Nike has made this year.
saudi arabia home
Saudi Arabia’s home shirt is white with a matching color pattern inside the shirt. From the images, the rib details on the collar and the Nike Swoosh appear to be a different green than the KSA badge, which makes the design look odd.
saudi arabia away
The patterned two-color green shirt is Saudi Arabia’s take on the away shirt.
Qatar will make its debut at the 2022 World Cup and will wear a dark red home shirt with triangular detailing on the sleeves that resembles the national flag.
Qatar’s away shirt features an off-white with a matching pattern on the shirt. The badge and Nike logo are dark red.
Australia’s home color is this bright yellow, and shirts with patterns on them really stand out. It has light green trim to finish the shirt.
Australia’s away shirt sticks to the same template pattern as the Netherlands, with updated colors. A dark navy shirt with mint green taping on the collar and sleeves.
Following the Australian and Dutch templates, the USA home shirt is the same. This time, the American coat of arms is centered, with red and blue collars supporting the white shirt. Interestingly, this one appears to have no Nike logo on the front and a Swoosh on the sleeve.
USA’s away shirt has a black and blue tie-dye pattern. Again, there is no Nike branding on the front and Swoosh on the sleeves.
new zealand home
The all-white New Zealand has a clean white home shirt with black trim on the sleeves and collar.
new zealand away
A perfect match for the all-white home, the New Zealand away kit is traditionally black. A simple yet clean shirt.
All Nike home and away shirts for the 2022 World Cup are now complete.
It won’t be long before the kit is ready for action. Which do you like and which do you dislike?
