Asian qualifiers South Korea have had their 2010 home and away jersey shirts released by Nike in the build up to the official launch before the World Cup begins.
The 2002 co-hosts qualified relatively comfortably from the Asian qualification section after winning four and drawing four matches to top their group ahead of rivals North Korea. The team have been drawn in a tricky qualification group alongside Argentina, Nigeria and Greece. They will hope to take advantage of Nigeria’s managerial problems and Greece’s inexperience at this level to sneak 2nd place in the group.
The South Korea home shirt design is predominately red with a small blue patch on the edge of both sleeves. The team are nicknamed “the Tigers” and this is reflected in their base design with darker red wavy patches running throughout the body. The collar is a blue round neck whilst the blue ouline of the national badge is situated in the top left.
The new South Korea 2010 away shirt design is predominately white with a blue patch on the edge of each sleeve. As with the home design, darker stripes are present throughout the entirety of the body. The collar is a white V neck and a dark blue national badge outline is also present in the top left.
