Euro 2016 uniform match-ups

I guess it's an unpopular opinion but I love that white Spain kit. It just exudes the essence of the 1994 World Cup.

With you we've got two in favour of the kit and two against.

Ireland vs. Italy. Two very nice designs. Also like that they both you use shorts in a different color. Green and blue is not a great clash, but still very good looking.

Belgium in that light blue against Sweden in yellow was a ridiculous choice.

Yeah, mystifying, and clearly made it more difficult to tell the teams apart. Also sad that Sweden's cool heathered away never saw the field during the tournament.

 

On the divisive Spain kit: looked bloodstained from far away, but up close I love that pattern. Very fresh look.

The shorts were the worst part of that look.

It's probably been mentioned before, but the Belgium away kit is based on the uniforms worn by the (immensely successful) Belgian cycling team.  In that regard, I think it's a fantastic tribute that makes for a really excellent kit.

Correct, the blue could have been more saturated though.

 

Plus you need to understand that cycling is THE sport in belgium. Way ahead of soccer.

Time for best and worst from the second half of the group stage.

 

Worst is yet again England in their awful mix of red, dark red and blue. Slovakia isn't too bad, just a victim of playing against England and wearing all white.

No obvious winner, but I give best match-up is Sweden vs. Italy. These teams both wear simple, good looking uniforms. This match-up has looked the same at least since the invention of color TV and it's nice to see they haven't changed. Nothing spectacular, but very solid.

Wales vs. Northern Ireland. Nice green vs. red match-up. I like that we're seeing a color flipped version of the same kit.

Portugal vs. Croatia. Croatia is lovely as always, but what Portugal is wearing is horrendous. That color is awful and it looks weird with two light teams.

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.

Looks like the Spain player had a heart attack and his heart literally exploded out of his chest.

Belgium going with light blue shorts today instead of black (much better IMO) against the classic red/white/green of Hungary:

Italy - Spain could be much better if Italy wear blue-white-blue and Spain wear red

France vs. Ireland. Still don't like France's kit, but I do love Ireland's and it's nice that Ireland isn't wearing all white.

Germany vs. Slovakia.  Slovakia's two shades of blue is good looking and with Germany's classic kit we've got a good looking match-up.

Spain vs. Italy. Red jerseys vs. Blue jerseys would have been even better, but I still love Spain's weird pattern. Italy great looking as always.
