Portugal and Holland have both got new away kits, both are supremely smart…

According to the Nike blurb, Portugal’s svelte black strip is apparently inspired by the volcanic basalt rock that is used extensively in construction throughout the country while Holland’s immaculate white, red and blue kit is inspired by Dutch football’s “relationship with geometry and space.”

Who could argue with that?

Pies have a penchant for unfussy black-on-black kits so Portugal’s new’n is an instant winner with us, and we seriously can’t remember the last Holland strip we didn’t like. This 2013 effort is no exception. Love it.

Any thoughts folks?
