Kit Watch: South Africa

Nike Kits Plastic Bottles Nike Kits Plastic Bottles Nike Kits Plastic Bottles

The best kit going is the Scotland adidas home kit. That shirt should be in South Africa on GP. A handsome kit that does the whole fake-tro better than any kit out there.

USA's new strip looks too asymmetrical for some chumps. It's on the retro kick as well and comparing it to pics from the 50's they got it.

That's just the away kit though.

As great as 1950's 1-0 victory over Engerland was, people forget beating them 2-0 in a 1993 friendly. What about beating world #1 Spain 2-0 in 2009 then leading Brasil 2-0 at the half the next Confederations match? Recently playing Holland to a 1-2 friendly defeat while demonstrating quality (Bornstein aside) further supports my assertion that as an aggregate - USA is only trending up towards top quality. USA don't need to hark back to 1950 to get ready for South Africa HARK TODAY! Nah Mean?!!?

"I hope I can be magical by wearing a retro kit."

Let's face it. It has been a lot worse.
