The FIFA 2018 World Cup is here and the fight is on! This time around, adidas and Nike pulled out all the stops to create some of the most beautiful jerseys we have ever seen. Here are the hottest selling World Cup 2018 jerseys right now in Malaysia.
The Belgium home jersey has a retro look inspired by the iconic 1984 design, one of the national team's most iconic designs ever. The jersey comes in red and uses yellow for the Adidas logo and dark red for the 3 Stripes, which run down the sides. The shirt features a rather unique graphic print on the front. It consists of an argyle in the colours of the Belgium flag - black, yellow and red - with the federation badge in its middle.
Unlike other World Cup jerseys inspired by designs in the 80's and 90's, the Japan home jersey takes no cue from past shirts and has a bespoke look inspired by traditional samurai armor instead. The jersey comes in traditional blue with an EQT collar. The front print of the jersey consists of dark and light blue stripes, complete with white 3 Stripes on the shoulders.
The Brazil away jersey comes in royal blue with an interesting, unique stars graphic covering the front. It is both fresh and a well-known look for the Brazil national team. Completing the jersey is blue and yellow taping found on the upper back and the collar of the shirt.
The Germany away jersey takes a cue from the away shirts of the early 1990s and particularly 1994. The jersey has a retro look in blueish-green - officially called 'EQT Green', making it the first green Germany away jersey since Euro 2012. This jersey will please most traditionalists as it's one of the most easily recognizable Germany away jersey colours. A graphical pattern inspired by the late 80’s and early 90’s covers the whole front and sleeves of the shirt. White ascents in the form of stripes on the shoulders, adidas and federation logos complete the jersey.
The Argentina home jersey draws inspiration from their 1993 Copa America shirt. It pays homage to the last time Argentina won a major title. The jersey comes in white with three large sky blue vertical stripes on the front and back. Black 3 Stripes adorn the shoulders.
The Argentina away jersey features a modern interpretation of the 1993 Copa America classic. The jersey is black with white and sky blue stripe patterns on the upper sides, with white 3 Stripes on the shoulders.
