The starting shirt
On Friday 8 July, the new jersey of the Argentine national team was presented, which will be used in the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The model, which was released by the women’s team in the Copa América in Colombia, was well received on social networks. But beyond the traditional colors of our flag, one detail caught our attention: the black color has reappeared.
The main jersey also has two connection points with a national symbol on the back: on the one hand, the central stripe represents a vertical flag, which recalls the way in which fans hang the national symbol of their country on their balconies during each World Cup; and on the other hand it has incorporated the May Sun – another national emblem that appears on the alternative jacket – on the back of the neck.
