World Cup kits: France’s 2010 adidas shirt leaked

This is a leaked shot of France’s new home kit for 2010, according to – so if the French beat the Rep. of Ireland in next month’s playoffs, this is the shirt that Franck Ribery and co. will be wearing in South Africa.

Meh. I’m not a big fan. The ‘three slash’ chest detailing seems like an unnecessary afterthought, and it clashes with the retro styling of the shoulder stripes (ooh, get me!). I assume it’s partly a tribute to the classic kit sported by Michel Platini in the mid-Eighties, but somehow it’s not a patch on that.

What do you think?
