Gallery: Argentina, Spain, Germany & Co. Launch 2018 World Cup Away Kits

Lionel Messi’s Argentina, Spain, Colombia and world champions Germany were among nine World Cup nations who launched their new away kits for the tournament in Russia on Tuesday.

All nine kits have followed the retro look of the home shirts, which were unveiled in November.

The official press release for the new Germany kit, which was inspired by the 1990 World Cup away kit, explained the pattern and colouring of the new strip as follows: "The jagged pattern, which is reminiscent of the design of 1990 and immortalised in the form of a chest ring on the home shirt, has been multiplied: It runs in different weights across the entire front, the sleeves and in the collar. Thus, the design pays off on the overarching strategy of soccer products at adidas: 'from authenticity to progression'."

Die Mannschaft star Julian Draxler gave the kit the thumbs-up.

"Our home colours will always be white and black, but I think if we go out like that, we do not have to hide," he said.

Japan kid is ok but the rest is just flops. This company is out of ideas. Puma and Nike improved a lot. I am a Bucs fan but I last bought an adidas kit when Jali,Manyisa,Mbuyane were still at Bucs and the jerseys were so beautiful but after that jeees it is just madness.
