The 5 best jerseys at EURO 2020

The national teams that will aesthetically dominate the scene at the next European Championships

The 5 best jerseys at EURO 2020 The national teams that will aesthetically dominate the scene at the next European Championships

The 16th edition of the European Championships is so close and all the teams have defined the kits with which they will play the matches of the continental competition. If on the one hand it will be one of the most balanced and interesting European championships ever, on the other hand the aesthetics that the 24 teams bring to the fields all over Europe is subject to analysis as much as the typical formations and forecasts. Not everyone succeeds in excelling, but those who succeed are able to take the field with a style to envy. We have chosen the five best uniforms of the European Championship, because the national jerseys have always represented a very realistic thermometer of the trends that sportswear brands follow.


Italy | PUMA, home kit

The patriotic sense is there, as well as the hope of seeing the Azzurri fight until the end, but Italian national team comes to this European with one of the best jerseys in history. The Renaissance design is perfectly combined with the gold details, giving a stylistic twist to the national team shirts that were becoming too basic and with an increasingly performance approach. Finally a style from Italy for Italy. If this is PUMA's last, it will be an exit with a bang.


Netherlands | Nike, home kit

If we talk about coherent designs, Netherlands is also on the podium. Nike has always taken care of the Orange aesthetics and, after a couple of standard releases, raises the bar again. The home kit that will be worn by De Jong, De Vrij and Depay shows all the pride of the nation through the lion figure composed of the geometries all along the shirt - both in the front and in the back. The logo and the Swoosh in black give character to a jersey that will dress players of great personality.


Germany | adidas, away kit

Even if the German national team does not start with the odds, adidas has created one of the most beautiful blackout kits ever seen on a football field. The references to the German flag on the sleeves embellish a shirt with a modern design, thanks to an all-over glossy print that brings out the federation logo and the crest of the three stripes. The only flaw? The numbers - both for the font, for the position, and for the size.


Denmark | Hummel, third kit

After the big 3, it's time to give space to those who use archival work superbly. The Denmark Hummel kit recalls the style of the one worn in 1986 by the national team and the perfect split of straight and oblique lines creates a pleasing effect to the eye. It could already be included in the list of the best monochrome kits in football history for aesthetics, heritage and reference. We'll see if Eriksen will be able to enchant as his compatriots did in Mexico '86.


England | Nike, away kit

Last but not least, there are the Lions of England. Once again Nike - which is the brand with the most teams at EURO 2020 - creates a kit capable of impressing and aesthetically elevating a national team that has always been at the top in these rankings. The continuum created between jersey and shorts is one of the trends that Nike is rediscovering and relaunching - as seen on the new Chelsea home kit. Having adapted the logo to the blue and red of the kit was a perfect aesthetic choice and England is a candidate to be one of the favorites, not only technically.
