We’ve got an elite eight of sorts (sides, yes, kits, maybe).
France vs Iceland. I’m still on the fence about France’s kits – I still don’t love them and I still don’t hate them. Iceland looks great in white with blue and red accents. Grade: A.
Germany vs Italy. Now THIS looks like a big time soccer match. Thank you, Germany, for breaking out the white socks. Thank you, Italy, for keeping it simple. Grade: A.
Wales vs Belgium. Wales looks great in red jerseys with white accents, white shorts with red accents, and red socks with white accents. I like the use of Belgium’s flag color stripes even though the sky blue base is not my favorite. Grade: A-.
Portugal vs Poland. I’m still on the fence about Portugal’s kits – I still don’t love them and I still don’t hate them. I like Poland’s white jerseys and white socks better with red shorts than with white shorts. Grade: A-.
