Asian qualifiers Australia have revealed a sneak design of their home and away shirts that they will wear at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
The team qualified comfortably for the 2010 tournament after finishing top of their five team qualification group. Progressing to the World Cup has become a much easier obstable for the Australian national team ever since they moved to the Asian confederation. When they finished top of the Oceanic region, they then had to face the team who finished 5th in the South American section in a two legged play off to decide who advanced. The Aussies tended to lose this match fairly often which helps explain why 2010 will be only their third appearance at a World Cup. With Germany, Serbia and Ghana in their group, the Aussies will have to be on top form to progress to the knock out stages.
The Australia 2010 home shirt design is predominately yellow body with green sleeves and shoulders. The sleeves also include a small yellow patch on the edge whilst a single white stripe runs across the chest. As the design has not yet been finalised, there is no manufacturers logo present on the front. Other details include a yellow badge in the top left and a green V neck collar.
The Australia 2010 away shirt design is predominately navy blue with lighter blue sleeves and shoulders. The sleeves also include a small yellow patch on the edge whilst a single yellow stripe runs across the torso. There is no manufacturers logo yet but a navy blue badge is present along with a light blue V neck collar.
