For football fans around the world, the team jersey is not just a piece of clothing worn by eleven players during a match, but also a symbol of the team itself.
Croatia – 1998
Man, myth, legend. Davor Shuker. Arguably one of the most underrated footballers of modern times, Šuker won the Golden Boot in France in 1998 to lead his country to unforgettable success when they knocked out reigning European champions Germany en route to the World Cup semi-finals.
Chelsea – 2005/06
These are the shirts that Chelsea have won back-to-back Premier League titles under José Mourinho.
Argentina – 1994
It wasn’t their World Cup as Argentina had already lost to Romania in the round of 16, but Gabriel Batistuta’s No. 9 performance will be remembered.
Manchester United – 2007/08
It was Sir Alex Ferguson’s best time as Manchester United boss as he was able to win three Premier League titles and the Champions League.
Milan – 2002/03
A great kit for Milan in 2002/03, which they made the most of by winning the Champions League that year by beating Juventus on penalties at Old Trafford. Alessandro Nesta and Paolo Maldini should certainly also be considered one of the best central defender pairings of all time.
France – 1998
The 1998 FIFA World Cup in France was a Zinedine Zidane show. His two goals in the final helped France defeat the vaunted Brazil team to win their first FIFA World Cup at home. Zizou was really amazing that day.
Liverpool – 2004-2006
Steven Gerrard led Liverpool to two of the most surprising wins in their history, the Champions League and FA Cup win in the classic Carlsberg set.
Netherlands – 1988
The Netherlands made all-out football a joy as spectators watched it on its way to victory at Euro 1988.
Napoli – 1986/87
Diego Maradona was so impressive in Naples that his number 10 is now permanently assigned to him at the club. Throughout an illustrious career, it is perhaps his performance in Naples that will evoke the most vivid memories, as the Argentine legend scored 81 goals in 188 appearances for the club.
Germany – 1990
This style won’t be popular with England fans, but whatever your preference, you’ll have to bow your head over the Warhol-inspired design of this set.
Worth mentioning is also the goalie kit, much like the kaleidoscope effect on Photo Booth that makes you feel like you’re in an alternate reality.
Barcelona – 2004-2006
Barcelona won league titles and the 2005/06 Champions League, which means that this jersey of those years will always be associated with Ronaldinho’s talent.
Arsenal – 2002-2004
Records were broken and history was made. Arsenal was so impressive that such heights in the Premier League will never be reached again. After all, the last team to go undefeated in 2003/2004 was Preston back in 1889.
