adidas Football have gone big and dropped three kits ahead of this international week.
Argentina, Colombia, and Mexico have three new home jerseys, each of them with great nod to the history and culture of their countries.
For the first time, the Argentinian flag takes precedence on their kit. With one singular white band in the middle flanked by two sky blue stripes each side, Lionel Messi has never looked like more of a national symbol. Alongside the flag design, the Argentina national shield has a subtle bas-relief design on the sleeve, alongside the ace vivid blue collar.
The new Colombian kit is a design that is inspired by the history of the textiles and culture of their country. There’s a more subtle yellow colourway compared to the World Cup kit (this one's almost like a mustard colour) while the blue horizontal lines are an ace compliment to the overall design of the 2019 version.
The new black Mexico kit is inspired not only by the Aztec ball used in the 1986 World Cup. The graphics are front and centre of the kit, and are standout features of a fantastic new design. The traditional Mexican colours of red, green, and white are a subtle feature to the banding around the sleeves.
All of these kits will be debuted during this international football week, keep an eye out on adidas.co.uk/football for them to drop online.
