Ahead of this summer’s World Cup, loaded has teamed up with  Classic Football Shirts to bring you 14 of the most iconic international kits. 

14

Jamaica

The Reggae Boyz were one of the best things about France ’98.

13

Spain

From a time when England were capable of dumping Spain out of major tournaments.

12

USA

The World Cup just won’t be the same without Team USA and their creative kits.

11

Scotland

An absolute stunner of a Scotland kit, clearly created by someone on LSD.

10

Nigeria

The Super Eagles have delivered some great kits in the past, but this one often gets overlooked.

9

Colombia

The hipsters’ choice when it comes to South American football shirts.

8

France

That collar setup makes this Les Bleus shirt a real thing of beauty.

7

England

This rarely-worn England away kit came during the Graham Taylor era but is well worth a revisit.

6

Holland

Holland have had many great kits, but this is the only one Dennis Bergkamp scored THAT goal in.

4

Argentina

An undisputed World Cup classic.

4

Soviet Union

Say what you want about the country, but the CCCP knew how to make a great kit.

3

Italy

This Italia ’90 classic remains the standard bearer for all Azzurri kits that have followed.

2

Germany

 

They may have heaped misery  on England but Die Mannschaft do retro kits better than most.

1

Brazil

From an era when Ronaldo was thin, Romario was class and goals celebrations were spontaneous.
