Next on the release roll-call from Nike is the new South Korea Home Shirt!
Rooted in the art of the game since ancient times. A source of national pride. A squad with a history of firsts. The Tigers of Asia attack the opposition with calculated ruthlessness.
Even when the odds are stacked against them, they rise to victory. The Kings of Asia, with seven consecutive trips to the world’s stage. Fear the Tiger roar as they step out on the pitch!
The South Korea Home shirt sticks to the now-customary red with blue trim. The subtle graphic of Tiger Stripes runs across the entire shirt.
Impressing in their last two World Cups (getting to the Semi-Final in 2002), South Korea – or the Korean Republic – have established themselves as a stylish team, who’re notoriously tough to break down.
Captained by Manchester United’s Park Ji-Sung, South Korea will go into the World Cup knowing that they have a difficult task, in a group that includes Argentina, Greece and Nigeria.
But in the past, having beaten the likes of Italy, Spain and Portugal – this experienced South Korea team know what it’s like to be the underdog!
The South Korea 2010 2012 Home kit is part of Nike’s environmentally conscious range – meaning that each shirt is made from approximately 8 plastic bottles, reclaimed from Chinese landfills.
