For the alternate I'd look to their national flag which is gold with a red lion and red trim. I'd also switch colors on the numbers. These would be impossible to read on TV and the stands.

Love all 3 Irish uniforms, could easily mix and match. The all white is my favorite. Not a fan of the Scottish alternate helmet but really like everything else.

Look forward to Wales. It could be really interesting. After you finish the British Isles I would love to see the Caribbean. Jamaica could really look great.

Scotland looks great. I have an idea for Japan, don't use the flag as the helmet that would look weird. Use a animal or a Sakura tree

I think it'd be cool if instead of using a checkerboard design for Scotland's pants, why not try using a tartan design?

Wales is great just as I figured it would be. Northern Ireland is very nice as well. Look forward to more!

This is a decent start. My first critique would be to draw inspiration from more aspects of a country than just it's flag. A national flag is just one symbol of pride out of many. For Scotland, use a darker blue and put the lion on the helmet that the soccer team uses. Incorporate gold and red and stay away from black. Like someone else mentioned, use the tartan pattern. And never make the number color the same as the jersey. I like the Irish design but just use more white on the home and rework the alt so the colors are more clear. Northern Ireland is interesting but looks like an Army concept, what's the inspiration for that? England's home sleeve caps don't work because they don't mimic the flag. Use a rose or crown or 3 lions in logo. Wales is my favorite, maybe use a dragon scale pattern somewhere? This has potential if you put more thought into it

I changed the numbers but stuck with the helmet design.

Here is Ireland

This one and Wales' designs are very nice. Simple and clean looks that I think are good. Overall, I think the designs could be improved by including a thoughtful pattern in the pants stripe (as someone said, the tartan for Scotland, something similar for the other countries). Nike used the Aztec calendar for San Diego State in their shoulder cap, and I think something similar to that might improve your designs.

A lot of good work here, and I do echo the suggestion to make sure the numbers are more visible.

I agree, Caribbean would be dope!!

Since it's not a unified Ireland team, I'd imagine they'd be...hesitant to go all orange (although I personally think that's the best looking of the three!)

Wow! That USA jersey is super loud. I'd also like the white stripes on the alt to be navy. And I realize why you did the square of stars, but in my personal opinion it would look better to fill that half of the helmet with stars. And one last nit-picky thing, you know how Army and Navy have the American flag on their shoulder cap (with the left side facing front)? It would look good if you did that as a homage to the military.

As much as I like Wales and Scotland I don't like the USA set at all. Still better than I can do but just to busy for my taste. I prefer the US more Navy than royal blue for starters
