No.10 - Mexico

Adidas hit the sartorial jackpot with this sleek design featuring a beautiful shade of green with white-and-red trims around the collar. Mexico may not be one of the highest profile teams in the tournament, but their kits are certainly of the highest quality. Viva la Mexico!

No.9 - Australia

Their World Cup jerseys have been among the most lauded, with the classic gold stripe running just below the shoulders -- an overt reference to the land Down Under’s national sport, rugby.

No.8 - Germany

The Germans have the longest standing relationship with Adidas, and here the sporting giant does the country justice with a simple design featuring the classic Adidas stripes, and three stripes featuring the German flag colors running down the right side of the shirt. It’s classic, simple and gets the job done.

No.7 - Portugal

Nike got it right with its white jerseys featuring a thick red-and-green stripe down the middle of the jersey. Graphic design at its finest.

No.6 - England

There is perhaps no other jersey in the world that comes with as many expectations and as much pressure as the English World Cup jersey. The sacred three Lions are the only thing that stands out on Umbro’s classic white jersey, and that’s the point.

No.5 - USA

A simple design transforming a simple jersey into a classic. This comes in the form of a striking slash that slices through the shirt and is reminiscent of the classic Peru jerseys from the 1978 World Cup. Though some have criticized the shirt for its resemblance to a certain beauty pageant accessory, we think Nike deserves a crown for this effort.

No.4 - Ivory Coast

Even though the Elephants disappointed its diehard fans, on the bright side they still boast one of the tournament’s most unidentifiable and electric jerseys. Proof that when it comes to sleek, eye-catching design, Puma can hang with the big boys.

No.3 - Spain

Much like Brazil’s shirt, the brain-trust behind Spain’s kit decided not to stray too far from the classic red shirt with the yellow Adidas stripes. Their World Cup jerseys were not very different from years past.


No.2 - Argentina

Argentina’s classic blue-and-white striped jersey was made famous by the likes of Maradona, and now belongs to Lionel Messi, the best player in the world. Next to rivals Brazil, it was the most instantly recognizable uniform in the game.


No.1 - Brazil

When Nike set out to design Brazil’s 2010 World Cup jersey, it’s evident that it followed one simple rule: Don’t mess with perfection. This all-time classic rarely changes from Cup to Cup and is by far the most easily identifiable jersey in all of soccer. The iconic yellow shirt with the green trim is as stylish as the many superstars that have worn it over the years, and the five stars above the crest -- representing Brazil’s record number of championships -- are a stark reminder that for those lucky enough to wear the jersey, victory is the only option.
