2012 European Championship: Photos of All 16 Kits for the Tournament
All 16 kits for the European Championship have been released.
One of the most iconic looks in sports remains mostly the same.
The Czech's often play in blue, so this jersey is somewhat of a departure for them.
The Danes are wearing something that looks like a throwback to the heady Umbro days of the 1980s and 90s.
The English will look great in this extremely classic look.
The French went for a different jersey design than in the past, perhaps to cleanse the memories from the 2010 World Cup.
The Germans wore green for most of their history and they will return to that look for Euro.
Greece, the oldest nation participating in the tournament has another very classic look.
The Irish are wearing a kit that fans will love or hate, not much middle ground here.
The Italian team is known as the Azzuri, which means blue. So this look was telegraphed.
One of the tournament favorites, the Dutch are going with a two toned look.
Tournament hosts Poland are looking good in a kit reminiscent of their flag.
The Portuguese changed nothing. They will stick with their classic red shirt with green trim.
The Russians will stand out thanks to the bold cross body stripe.
The defending World Champions will wear a very classic look.
The Swedes jersey is not unexpected, but the bright color and interesting design is always a winner.
The host nation takes a risk with the center stripe pattern, but in their first ever Euro they have to make a mark somehow.
