The kits might be lighter than ever but Argentina's 2018 World Cup home shirt will carry a heavy weight of expectation as the Messi-generation arrives in Russia. The Argentines are celebrating their 125 year anniversary in their new home kit, a celebration they'll be looking to extend in Moscow on July 15.

Much fancied, well experienced, and led by a player determined to find that missing trophy from his cabinet. Argentina will be amongst the favourites in Russia and those famous blue and white stripes will draw crowds along every step of the way.


The Argentina 2018 World Cup kit pays tribute to the anniversary by subtly incorporating laurels, a key element of the Argentinian coat of arms and the AFA crest, into the iconic blue and white stripes. The laurels are executed in a modern pixel optic to offer a contemporary look. The jersey features an embossed sign-off combined of laurels and the number 125, with two gold stars above the badge in celebration of the country’s two FIFA World Cup wins. Three stars and three stripes would look a bit more balanced mind...


With this guy pulling the strings there's every chance those stripes will be matched by stars. They may have stumbled towards Buenos Aires airport to catch the last flight to Moscow but when the first whistle blows in their opening group game you can bet those blue and white stripes will be firing hard.
