Second matches of group play continued. Some sides wore what they wore a few days ago; some didn’t.
Spain vs Turkey. Spain looked as bad, if not worse, the second time around in its red jerseys with yellow accents, blue shorts with yellow accents, and *navy* blue socks. Turkey looked good with a white to sky blue gradient on the jerseys and black shorts but might have looked better with sky blue shorts. In my opinion, there are too many shades of too many colors, and each side could have made one small change to simplify and improve its look. Grade: B-.
Czech Republic vs Croatia. Czech Republic looked as good, if not better, the second time around in white with blue trim and red accents. Croatia looked as good, if not better, the second time around with a blue and navy blue checkerboard pattern on the jerseys. Grade: A.
Italy vs Sweden. Italy’s kits scream, “Our country’s colors are green, white, and red and our soccer team’s color is blue, so let’s throw them together, this time with blue jerseys and white shorts, and see how it looks.” Sweden looked as good, if not better, the second time around in yellow jerseys with blue accents, blue shorts with yellow accents, and yellow socks with blue accents. Grade: A-.
