“We wanted to give Portugal a classic and sophisticated look for their new away kit, which captures the flamboyance and brilliance of the football that saw them qualify for Brasil,” said Martin Lotti, Global Creative Director, Nike Football.

With the white away jersey, Nike designers wanted to give Portugal a tailored, well-dressed look. It boasts a unique two-level stand collar and blue cuffs.

On either side of the Portuguese Football Federation’s crest are the years 1914 and 2014 to commemorate the team’s centenary.

Inside the back of the neck is a white pennant tab featuring the Order of Christ, an evocative Portuguese cross that pays homage to the nation’s rich seafaring history. The cross radiated from the sails of the ships helmed by great Portuguese explorers during the 15th century.

The names and numbers on the back of the jersey are inspired by old typefaces used on traditional Portuguese signs, producing a font that is both contemporary and Art Deco.

The blue away shorts are simple and iconic, with a slimmer fit tailored to the body specifically designed to aid movement and comfort. The center back of the shorts feature Nike’s signature laser vents to promote cooling and allow for moisture management. The new away socks are white.
