Saw these this morning on ESPN. First reaction? We look like France. I don't like them. Now if we could play a bit more like France during their great years, I'll gladly take the jerseys. However, far too similar. The solid stripes, while horizontal, look like France's flag.

The blue is a little closer to France's flag rather than Yugoslavia.

That are horrible. The blue being the wrong color is the worst part. If you are go8ing to include a color that is a national color it needs to be right.

Well in that case- you must have a serious problem with the differences in Spanish spoken between Spain and Mexico, right?

I'm actually kinda surprised that for Nike uniforms that are pretty dull lol. Not a fan. More of the French colors than America.

Hence why I said uniform. Uniform refers to the entire thing warn by an athlete. Kit is European way of talking about same thing. It's just like its a soccer field not a pitch when you are in America. Want to be soccer snobs use pitch and kit to look sophisticated but it really just comes across dueschie.

I think it's because you need a kit to play on a pitch and uniforms are for fields ;)

All I have ever understood a uniform to mean is the jersey and pants. Does a football uniform include your pads?If so I have never heard it referred to as such. A soccer kit includes your shin guards. The pitch is the proper term no problem there but boots does bother me. They are shoes or cleats not boots.
