World Cup Kitman: Uruguay home
This summer’s hottest footy fashions
Prem personalisation: Diego Arismendi (if he makes the squad), Diego Forlan (if you fancy a blast from the past)
Verdict: Breaking Adidas’s monopoly on the Group A kits is the little Puma number for Uruguay. It comes in the South American nation’s traditional baby blue and features three-in-one-looking collar which can’t quite decide if it is a roundneck, a v-neck or a polo shirt.
Some national symbols lend themselves neatly to football kits (think Three Lions, or the German eagle). OTP would have to argue that the Uruguayan sunshine does not belong in that category. The motif is used throughout the shirt making it look a bit like a New Age hippy’s dream curtains.
