Northern Ireland kits Euro 1992 Qualifying

In 1990 Umbro resumed their relationship with the IFA and introduced a set of kits with a repeated geometric pattern. The reintroduction of navy blue to the national team's pallette was a welcome reminder of Ireland's early heritage. 

Scotland kits Euro 1992

This umbro kit likes me because of the special neck it has, of course when compared with the revolutionary away kit, the home outfit looked positively conservative. As a funny note, numbers on home kit are different between jersey and short. Almost forget, umbro logo in home jersey have the new logo design at a time, meanwhile the rest of the logos conserve the old design.

Germany kits Euro 1992

Germany team and Adidas have always had an affair, more evident in Euro 1992, Adidas always have something different for German kits, in that time was the most spectacular V neck of all mankind and another details but the neck was something awesome, when you probably think that a simple white neck with black Adidas logo is adequate...boom!. Anyway another detail was the absence of stripes in short and the sleeve stripes design of course.

USA kits 1992-1994

This adidas kits dressed USA team during the build up to the 1994 World Cup which they hosted. I mentioned before that this design in particularly from adidas  is the best of all in my opinion, those days the German brand decided that 3 stripe concept will be his mark, even they changed logo. Man! even they asociated stripes to sport clothes since ever. Notice that US logo and numbers are different between those kits, it's a prove that designers still missed details like this in 90's decade. And maybe a little bit of red improve away kit, don´t you think?.

Sweden kits Euro 1992

In this tournament we saw a change in design philosophy, Adidas was the leader and they were who brought that change ... no pattern fabric and a simple and impact 3 stripe graphic in jersey and shorts, a few months later socks too. Isn't greath that big 3 stripe in shoulder. The best all time adidas design in my opinion till now. The away kit don't showed up in Euro 92, but the kit was seen in friendly matches. Almost forget.. and new logo too, guess what! a big 3 stripes too.. that's branding? hell yes!!

Netherlands kits Euro 1992

New era was for Holland team with this Lotto kit open the 90s decade, in a elegant kind of design as his counterparts Umbro, guys of italian brand sponsor one of the hottest teams in those times. The kit was popular, i guess because so many years with Adidas.

Soviet Union kits Euro 1992 Qualifying

As the USSR national team had already booked a spot in Euro 1992 through the 1991 qualification tournament, the only way to preserve the spot for the post-Soviet team was to take part in the competition as a unified team. Here the kits dressed during the qualification stage, showing a crazy pattern design fashionable at the time.

CIS kits Euro 1992

The CIS national football team was a provisional national team of the Football Federation of the Soviet Union in 1992. Team would represent the Commonwealth of Independent States. They dressed adidas three stripes shoulders design. With the end of Euro 1992, the team was transformed into the Russia national team.

Wales kits Euro 1992 Qualifying

Great kit by umbro with his traditional elegant look and his geometrical patterns. After an absence of 16 years, Umbro returned as Wales' kit partner at a time when designs were becoming ever more outlandish, due largely to the growth in replica sales. Shirts were designed with an eye for how they would look worn with jeans on the High Street as much their appearance on the pitch.

Home kit kept the popular all-red look with some discrete trimmings in green and white. The shirt was manufactured with the same fabric also used for England's blue third strip of the period. The away kit was an adventurous business. Basically white, the shirt featured a complicated pattern in green and red over an abstract fabric. The shorts and stockings were identical in design to those of the home set, allowing elements to be mixed and matched if required.

Denmark kits Euro 1992

For me this kits designed by hummel is the king of all kits. As a curious detail the short numbers are different from the jersey. Anyway Denmark made a great and stunning Danish Fairy tales in Euro 1992 by participating the tournament as a replacement team of an abandoned Yugoslavia, and then later clinched the Euro 1992 title in the end.

Switzerland kits Euro 1992 Qualifying

Swiss team dressed this Blacky brand kit from 1990 to 1992, this swiss brand try to make impact in those years and one of his insignia teams was Switzerland. Blacky was known for playing a lot with patterns and colors. What we laughed today was innovative at that time. "The designs were a little debatable," says Jörg Stiel former goalkeeper of the FC Wettingen.
