Nike kick off their 2015 European replica game in electric style with the new Portugal away kit. Inspired by the team's fast-paced style of play the shirt goes back to black and features a unique speed graphic on the chest using vivid green and red light ray flashes.
There's always something special about a black kit for us and the green & red flashes taken from the Portuguese flag are the perfect finishing touches to give the shirt a sleek but distinct feel. The two colours creep in from opposite sides and are elevated on top of the black canvas, a popular colour previously worn by Portugal, most recently in the 2013/14 season.
A new Nike-specific streamlined, modern V–neck collar in black with a red ribbed band at the back adds a secondary pop of colour and inside the back of the neck is a pennant tab that features an armillary sphere, an ancient navigational device, to represent Portugal’s seafaring history. The tool has been a national symbol for more than 500 years and rests behind the Portuguese shield on the national flag.
The new Portugal away kit will be available from selected online stockists including Pro Soccer SA from March 21.
