Asian nation South Korea have officially revealed their new away shirt that they will wear at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
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 new South Korea 2010 away shirt is predominately white with a faded swerved pattern etched into the background of the body. Manufacturers Nike place their dark blue “tick” logo in the top right of the shirt whilst the blue national badge containing a “tiger” (their nickname) is situated in the top left. Other details include blue patches on the edges of the sleeves and a white round neck collar.
