African nation Algeria has revealed their new home and away shirts that they will wear during the 2010 World Cup to be hosted in South Africa next summer.
The qualification surprise package have only managed to reach the group stages of the World Cup on two previous occasions. After being drawn in the same qualifying group as Egypt, progress to a 3rd World Cup looked unlikely. Nevertheless, the Algerians stunned their rivals in a tightly fought group. The draw for the tournament saw the Africans pitted against USA, Slovenia and England. They will hope to progress to the knock out stages for the first time in their history.
The new Algeria 2010 World Cup home shirt is predominately white with green sleeve trims and a green and white combined V neck collar. Manufacturers Puma place their red “cat” logo centrally below the collar and on both sleeves on the shirt. A faded image of a fox is present in the top right of the shirt to represent Algeria’s nickname (The Desert Foxes). The national team badge is situated in the top left along with a single gold star above to represent their one African Cup success to date.
The new Algeria 2010 away World Cup shirt is predominately green with several thin white and red vertical stripes running together throughout the body.

Other details include white sleeve trims and a green round neck collar.
