Rumored Nike Euro 2012 Kits: France, Netherlands, Portugal. Plus Brazil’s WC Qualifying kit.
Right, so we don’t know how legit these leaked kits are. But, we’ll evaluate them anyways.
France’s looks sort of like they took the stripes from the 2011 away and threw it on to the home kit. They’re not bad but, they’re not spectacular either.
Netherlands, actually we sort of like them. There could never be any doubt than the home kit would be orange. The geometric shapes make both home & away interesting.
Portugal, not a huge change from the current home shirt. We like the away a lot though.
Brazil, They got rid of the loading bar across their chest! Love the shade of blue on the away as well.
What do you all think?
France: Don’t change! Your current kits are wonderful! What are you doing?!
Netherlands: Home is interesting (could grow on me), away looks like a training kit; they should’ve kept the orange stripe going all the way down.
Portugal: No. Just no. Home is too simple (but may grow on me). Away just isn’t working for me.
>blowing your 1-0 lead in the 84th minute
>haven’t scored all night
>can’t score a penalty
>need Brazil to score all the goals for you in the match
Thanks for making me feel better about the USMNT.
Brazil actually made a penalty
USWNT Advances to Semifinals
In other, non-club-related news, the US women defeated Brazil on penalties to advance to the semifinals of the 2010 Women’s World Cup, where they will face France.
Those French women are sick-nasty athletes, but I have faith in Wambach, Rapinoe, and Hope Solo who is half woman/half wall. And pretty. Really, really, pretty.
The match is Wednesday, so I’m hoping for the girls to make it a great 90 minutes, and earn themselves their well-deserved spot in the final. Go get ‘em, girls.
