Even if you don’t like football it is easy to have an opinion on how each team looks.
From the traditional to the exciting, here are the kits of the FIFA Women’s World Cup final 16.
Each kit is given a rating out of 10 according to how original they are compared to the country’s previous kits, how nice the finish (overall look and cut) is and how unique it is compared to the other kits at the tournament.
The Australian home jersey is a throwback to the kits of the 90s. Most people either love it or hate it but there is no denying this kit is different. This look is at its best when paired with the matching socks as opposed to the usual block colours, and the green shorts to break the pattern.
The green of the Matildas’ away jersey differs from the usual navy second strip. The neon numbers contrast with the dark kit making it easy to read from a distance and matches the splash of colour across the front.
The Norwegian home strip has managed to set itself apart from the rest of the red, blue and white kits. The clever fade from red to blue gives the kit a fresh and unique look while also adding to the class of the finish.
Though similar to some of their previous away jerseys, this strip has added more colour. The style and cut gives the shirt a nice finish. Although due to many countries using similar, colours the kit could be misidentified.
Reminiscent of past jerseys, Italy has gone with a traditional approach to their home kit for the World Cup. While not the most exciting jersey, it is easily recognisable.
Having their main kit colour as white means the Italian away jersey is very similar to many other counties at this World Cup. The only differences being the blue trim on the sleeves and the prominent position of the flag. Italy is yet to debut this kit in France.
Though similar to past versions, the finish of China’s home jersey is nice and clean. With a large number of teams at the World Cup also sporting red, the yellow detailing on the shoulders sets China apart.
China’s away kit is vastly different from others in the tournament. In stark contrast to the traditional colours of the home kit, the grey and orange provide a refreshing change and the subtle detailing of the shirt gives it an extra touch of class.
The English kits have rarely seen major changes but perhaps that’s for the best. The red trimming on the white strip gives the overall kit a sleek and clean finish.
While it is another red kit, the finish of England’s second strip is clean and classy. There is some patterning on the shirt but it is difficult to see if you’re in the stands.
