Portugal, England unveil unpopular World Cup kits

FIFA World Cup: Nike unveils latest kits for Qatar 2022, Portugal and England jerseys get trolled

September 15, 2022 By Ali M.
Nike unveiled several new jerseys for the upcoming FIFA World Cup for countries such as France, the Netherlands, USA, Croatia, and Brazil. However, the Portugal and England designs sparked controversy.

With the 2022 FIFA World Cup being roughly two months away, a number of the 32 participants in Qatar have been dropping their kits for the highly-anticipated tournament.

Outside of roster announcements, a kit unveiling is the most exciting part of the build-up to FIFA's prestigious event. As a result, fans eagerly awaited what Nike had in store for the likes of France, the Netherlands, Portugal, Brazil, and the USMNT.

And on Thursday, September 15, we got the answer. The billion-dollar American manufacturers dropped the jerseys for the aforementioned nations, as well as Poland, Croatia, Canada, Saudi Arabia, and the host nation, just to name a few.

Sadly, while some of Nike's designs will have fans reaching for their wallets, purses, and credit cards in a heartbeat, others sparked anger on social media. Unfortunately for Portugal, they fall into the latter category, as Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes modeled the new–but unpopular–look for A Seleção.

The kit has "deep and vivacious shades of red and green" with a diagonal line cutting across the chest and back, mimicking the country's flag wrapped around a player. However, this edition pales in comparison to some of the previous works of art donned by Luis Figo, Deco, and Cristiano Ronaldo. The away shirt, meanwhile, is of an off-white shade and has a strip with identical green and red shades to pay tribute to the nation's flag.

However, many were left upset as Ronaldo's final FIFA World Cup tournament could come in this polarizing shirt. Likewise, England's new look was met with a similar reaction. While Nike wasn't supposed to release the Three Lions' jersey until a later date out of respect for the recent death of Queen Elizabeth II, the company mistakenly unveiled it and gave supporters an early glimpse at what Harry Kane and Co. will be wearing in Qatar.

England's away shirt is a red design with dark blue sprinkled here and there, including the collar and bottom of the sleeves, and has been received fairly well. However, the main jersey garnered a far worse reaction. Check out the best tweets below.

As mentioned earlier, the USMNT kit was also unveiled, with the home jersey being the typical white design with red and blue stripes running across the sleeve. The away jersey, however, took a more unique route as the blue shirt boasts red accents on the sides and a black-colored textured pattern created by an "iced-dying" technique.
