They're far from dark horses, but Argentina will wear a black away strip at the World Cup this summer. The South Americans become the latest adidas nation to receive their 2018 away kit ahead of this week's friendly fixtures.

The Argentina away kit will see the team take to the pitch in black for the first time in the AFA’s history. For the 2018 World Cup in Russia adidas have sorted their nations out with jerseys inspired by iconic shirts from the past. Argentina's away shirt is a reinterpretation of previous adidas Argentina away jerseys, brought up to date with the inclusion of a bold graphic inspired by the colours of the nation’s flag.

The new away strip will be worn by Messi and co in the upcoming international schedule, most likely in their away fixture to Spain on March 27. Before that, Argentina will likely play in the 2018 home kit when they entertain Italy on March 23.
