Euro 2016 uniform match-ups

Here is a pic of the match.

Really weird they're not using the "original" Nike design. But I actually think this one looks better.

EDIT: And here's the Footy Headlines article on it: http://www.footyheadlines.com/2016/06/france-debuts-new-away-kit-switzerland.html?m=1

 

Looks like it's just a one-off, like Spain's white kit in the 2014 World Cup was. It's a shame because I too think this one looks much better than the original.

Albania vs. Romania. I can't really call these uniforms beautiful, but at least it's more interesting than another all white vs. all blue matchup.

Really makes me annoyed to see that Nike has made an amazing looking kit for England and then given that kit to France. That doesn't make me happy about the good design. It just makes me angry about Nike's arrogant change for the sake of change approach to kit design.

Had France run Switzerland off the field I wouldn't be surprised to see those stay in the rotation. Who knows maybe Nike will make this the "third" option?

Pretty silly rule when in the case of France, the darkness (or whichever technical color term) of each sleeve was about the same. It wasn't as if one sleeve was brigh blue and the other black.

EDIT- more pics of the France kit.

 

Are the shorts and trim color navy or black? We already know France's home kit has black on it but I don't see much difference between the black training kit and the shorts.

England vs. Slovakia. Dark red arms and blue socks, that doesn't work either. England is looking truly terrible in this tournament. Slovakia in their same old all white.

Russia vs. Wales. Simple, but good designs. No one-color kits. Good looking game. I also tend to like when both teams have the same kit supplier.

Ukraine vs. Poland. A bit unusual to see white vs. yellow. Would have preferred Poland in red/white/red. Still a decent looking game though.

Germany vs. Northern Ireland. Two good looking adidas uniforms with no one-color kits. I'm pretty happy with this. Side note: What Northern Ireland is wearing would have been a good looking secondary kit for Germany. Blue is not color Germany has worn as far as I know, but it works really well with the green and Germany has been wearing green as their secondary in many tournaments.

I would've also liked this as a Germany away kit. And no, Germany never wore blue as a uniform, but blue is our traditional training gear colour.

Pretty much anything would be better than Germany's current brownish green secondary set.

 

Really would have wished they stuck with this or something similar as the secondary kit. Great looking kit and of course strongly associated with that triumphant game.

Croatia vs. Spain. Another all blue vs. all white. I've complained about that before, but in this case both uniforms are so good looking I don't mind it at all. Red and yellow on white is a great look and it's a very nice clash against Croatia's blue. Top notch.

Czechia vs. Turkey. Really like Czechia up close with the two different kinds of red. Love Turkey's kit as well, but really wish they would have brought a pair of teal or white socks.

While I do like Croatia's blue, especially with the checkered element that carries through from their home red/white, I hate that kit for Spain, it looks like someone vomited salsa on the front of a perfectly serviceable white kit. Reminds me of some of the awful Warrior Liverpool thirds.  Also, I'm not a fan of monochrome kits for teams that have established non-monochrome home/away colors.

That Spanish kit is hilarious. It looks like the dude was eating a hotdog with mustard and ketchup and then dropped it on his shirt leaving stains behind.

The black socks made no sense and kinda ruined it for me. White would've looked slot better .

Hungary vs. Portugal. I really like what Hungary is wearing in all it's simplicity. Can't make up my mind about Portugal, but leaning towards hating hit.

Sweden vs. Belgium. A little unusual to see two light jerseys, but they are both great looking in my opinion.
