Portugal Away Kit 2010 / 2012
Nani was on hand to launch the New Portugal Away Kit at Nike’s Make History event in London, but the whole team was out in force to give the Kit it’s on-pitch debut in Coimbra!
Portugal ran out 2-0 winners in a friendly against China o, giving Cristiano Ronaldo & co a morale boost, as the time to prepare for the World Cup grows ever shorter.
The new Portugal Away kit comes in a dazzling white, with the two-tone stripe down the front evoking the colours of the national flag, giving the whole kit a patriotic feel that will hopefully give Portugal the courage and spirit to endure this summer’s dreaded ‘Group of Death’!
As well as being made from reclaimed polyester, recycled from plastic bottles, Nike had this to say about the new kit:
Improved Nike Dri-Fit fabric, now 13 percent lighter than previous Nike kit fabrications, helps keep players dry by drawing sweat to the outside of the garment where it evaporates. Ventilation zones have been placed on each side of the jersey to enhance breathability, and are combined with a fabric that increases air flow by up to seven percent compared to previous kits. Air can now pass across a player’s whole torso, keeping him cooler. These ventilation zones consist of up to 200 tiny laser cut holes which are backed by Nike’s innovative halo application. This treatment prevents ripping without reducing air flow.
The Nike kit shorts also have additional ventilation zones placed below the waistband and near the base of the spine, so this area prone to high sweat levels will now be significantly drier.
The jersey’s new double knit structure not only gives it a sleeker appearance, while offering 10 percent more stretch than the last Nike national team kit jerseys , but also boasts a new dynamic fit' cut to follow the natural contours of the body while still allowing for maximum airflow and movement.
