2002 World Cup joint hosts Japan have revealed their new kit for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa that the nation will hope to wear during a successful tournament.
The Japanese qualified for the 2010 World Cup with relative ease. The nation, who have become one of Asia’s regular participents at the tournament in recent years, finished second in their five team group behind Australia. The top two teams automatically went through meaning Bahrain, Qatar and Uzbekistan missed out on the automatic spots. The team’s best ever run at the tournament was in 2002 when they qualified for the first round of the knock out stages.
The recently revealed 2010 Japan World Cup kit contains a predominately blue shirt with a thick pattern indented into the background of the body. There are two grey patches that run up the sides of the shirt whilst a large red block is present just below the blue round neck collar. Manufacturers Adidas place their white logo in the very top right of the shirt along with the three traditional white stripes that run half way down the shoulders. A Japanese flag is situated in the very top left of the shirt whilst the national badge is placed directly below.
